Whitley Awards - An opportunity to nominate a local conservation hero from your country

Here is a link to the Whitley Awards scheme.. Nominate your Conservation Hero here: https://whitleyaward.org/apply-for-conservation-funding/how-to-apply/.


When we hear of awards or opportunities like this we will post them to this platform... another reason why participants are encouraged to join, use and frequently visit us here (smile)

Note this award is not related to Rare's work, but The Whitley Fund for Nature is a fantastic organization and is a fundraising and grant-giving nature conservation charity offering recognition, training and grants to support the work of proven grassroots conservation leaders in developing countries

Why not nominate someone for the award? In 2017, one of Rare's local partners (Indira Lacerna-Widmann from the Philippines) received the award and flew to the UK to accept it from Princess Anne — see https://whitleyaward.org/winners/partnering-prisoners-safeguard-critically-endangered-philippine-cockatoo/

Good luck

Updates from MASLUZ

Thank you Paul for continues update. On  September 8 , 2018, I will be coducting basic living bio beds training in one of our community in Legaspi City in partnership with Good Shepherd Homes. Most of the members are rural women. These women are so enthusiastic to hear about this technology and are also willing to adopt it. I'll just send updates after the activity. With  regards to proposal submission,  I'm still waiting for the final word from our national office whether to submit or not. Rest assured that I , as C4C trainee, will continue to help in the campaign on living biobeds and will provide you regular updates on this. 

Power to the peasants!
