Britain takes a lead to protect world’s assets

Posted on by in

SOME of the world’s greatest environmental assets will be preserved thanks to a British-led initiative.

Environment minister Richard Benyon announced the latest round of the Darwin Initiative will see a total of £8.7m committed over the next three years, including £5.5m million to fund 21 new conservation projects in developing countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia.
The projects include working with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds to improve habitats for birds in Sierra Leone, assisting the World Wildlife Fund in encouraging communities to conserve their forests in Kenya and providing funding to the University of Oxford to strengthen anti-poaching patrols in Cameroon.
