Conservation history, fieldwork and cyber donations
Yesterday I was preparing my words for an event being held in Bristol on Thursday evening -- we will be tracing the history of the World Land Trust over the past 20 years, using video clips from several of our projects.
We heard back from our Diploma Students, currently on Margarita Island, Venezuela, where they are carrying out their field work -- all seems to be going well, though they have to start work at 3.30 am, to avoid the heat!
Finally we totted up the funds raised on our JustGiving web pages for orang-utans in Borneo and elephants and tigers in India, and the appeals have raised nearly £400,000, with over £60,000 being raised directly on the web pages. So thanks to all the fundraisers out there in cyber space. Keep up the good work, and spread the message.
