The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) has announced the winners of the 2010 Team Conservation Awards.
Following a highly competitive review and selection process, 36 award winning projects were selected from 265 applications.
The CLP will be disbursing a total of $600,000 this year to teams from 23 different countries. And for the first time this year, we will be supporting conservation projects in Bangladesh, Nigeria, Uzbekistan and Zimbabwe.
These teams are focusing on the most threatened of species, and their work goes beyond basic research – from conservation of the critically endangered Togo slippery frog (Conraua Derooi) in Ghana to assessing human impacts on the endangered Ganges River dolphin (Platanista gangetica) in Bangladesh.
“This year’s award-winning projects demonstrate the diversity of on-the-ground activities which are being undertaken by young, committed people to conserve a wide range of species and habitats,” said Stuart Paterson, FFI’s CLP Programme Coordinator.
“Over 30 winners are currently in partaking in the annual CLP International Training Course which will provide them with important skills in project planning, communications and behaviour change through education which will make them even more effective conservationists.”
The CLP would like to thank Save Our Species (SOS), a joint initiative by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the World Bank and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The support from SOS enabled CLP to support eight additional projects with funding, training and ongoing support.
