Durrell Widlife Conservation Trust, in addition to maintaining the Jersey Zoo – the Jersey Zoo – also cordages and supports conservation projects around the world, working to save several species from extinction.
The Royal Marines have a charity fund – Royal Marines Charity – which reverses the amounts collected to support the military that were injured in missions and their families, as well as improving the work situation of serving officers, and investing in technology research to apply, for example, to prostheses and health and rehabilitation treatments.
Henry Cavill is the ambassador of these two serious institutions and in this column, we highlight the updates of these causes in the week:
Durrell began the week by sharing a little more of the steps in his site from his serious conservation work around the world.
“When a species is on the edge of extinction, it might require decades of sustained conservation. We apply seven key actions at different times and with varying levels of effort, depending on the species’ needs. We then monitor these actions to determine the impact of our work and will revisit actions if they’re not working as planned”.
According to the Durrell website, the main steps are:
– Conservation Research
– Planning Activities
– Monitoring Impacts
– Strengthening Local Partners
– Managing Species
– Conserving Habitats
– Empowering Local People
– Application of the Law
Durrell works around the world with some of the most endangered species in the most endangered places. Topping the list of conservation efforts today is the Plowshare Turtle.
A species that was almost considered extinct in 1986, it has received a joint effort between Durrell, with the community, local partners and the authorities of Madagascar, so that this risk does not become reality.

On September 5, Durrell thanked everyone who collaborated with their projects.
“Thank you to all our supporters on International Day Of Charity. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to carry out our mission of saving species from extinction. #InternationalDayOfCharity#SavingSpecies”
And on September 6, he highlighted Gerald Durrell’s book “How to Shoot an Amateur Naturalist” in celebration of National Read A Book Day.

The Royal Marines began the week highlighting the participation of eight officers of the Commando Helicopter Force, in the games of the Highlands. The team participated in several games within the games and was in 3rd place in the “Tug of War” and 4th in the “Relay”.
Some evidence was made before Her Majesty the Queen of England at the Braemar Royal Highland Gathering.
Another activity of the week of the RM, was a demonstration of attack against an enemy on the beach at Bournemouth Airshow.
The exercise was supported by the Argus RFA, Hawk jets and a Wildcat attack helicopter.
And on the page of the Commando Challenge, which takes place on October 14 and 15, a video was released that shows a little of the course faced by those enrolled in the 5k and 10k races.
You can see the beautiful landscape and also some of the mud that awaits you!
