Our blog & news: Get involved to help wildlife

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." 
Margaret Mead, American anthropologist, 1901-1978

Search Take Action for Wildlife Conservation

The 20-27th April 2023 saw the Green Match Fund 202when donations made to 178 participating charities were doubled.  Some are protecting specific animals such as dormice or otters, whilst others are focusing on habitats such as hedgerows or seagrass. Some are based in the UK but help wildlife overseas.  The event raised over £4,349,330  for the participating charities through 22,457 donations!  This well exceeded the previous year's event (£2.8 million).  Well done everyone!

A bill to ban single use plastic goes forth in Rwanda...

Posted on


BBC Africa has reported that the Rwandan government wants the parliament to pass a bill to ban single use plastic to protect the environment in the country.

A draft bill suggests a 2 year moratorium for companies to stop making single use plastics.

In 2008, plastics were first banned in Rwanda; however some plastic materials are still used.  Mineral water and juice bottles, straws in bars and hotels, and single use dishes are still used.

So the government now wants to ban these too, and a bill will go to parliament for a vote.

Good luck to it!
