British actor Henry Cavill is ambassador to the causes Durrell Wildlife Conservaation Trust and Royal Marines Charity. He participates in events and campaigns to publicize and raise funds for these projects, counting on his help. To learn more about these serious institutions, their projects, and how to collaborate with these causes, follow our Charity Update.
The week brought the spread of several prominent conservationist projects in Durrell.
One such project is ReWild, whose proposal is to reclaim wildlife through ecosystems and species, connecting people and communities with the responsibility to protect our valuable environment.
Next Thursday, in Durrell, Durrell will host an event with a real ‘Green Carpet’, featuring the conservation actions that are under way in several parts of the world – including Brasil – and the future objectives of the project.
To learn more about ReWild and how to contribute to a wilder, healthier and more colorful world, visit the Durrell website.
It has also been shared by the Durrell Academy, which still has vacancies for the Endangered Species Recovery course, which will take place at the Durrell Academy in Jersey from 3 to 14 September.
The course that addresses practices for saving and protecting endangered species is for those who care about the environment, whether they work as conservationists, students, or academics.
To learn more visit durrell.org/academy or email Durrell firstname.lastname@example.org
Durrell Academy has also released a Social Marketing Webnario, which talks about how to engage people to conservation causes through social media and marketing actions.

Another video posted this week on Durrell’s networks is the #BatOnTheBrink bat conservation project (from the Ben Bat family, adopted by Ambassador Henry Cavill).
Livingstone’s bat species are in critical condition. There are only about 1,300 individuals of the species free in nature, and of the 71 who live in captivity, 51 are in the Durrell Jersey Zoo.
This shows the importance of Durrell’s tireless work of study and protection on this and various species.
To ensure that the project continues to have success in preserving bats such as Jersey Zoo’s Ben and Claudia, Durrell needs to collect
£ 7,500 (approximately R $ 33,000).

And to close the updates of Durrell’s week we can not leave aside the Durrell Challenge.
Event that takes place on May 13 and will feature the famous 13k race and Safari Superhero in Jersey, and the participation of Henry Cavill.
We are already looking forward to this and you?
One of the highlights of the Royal Marines‘ networks was to remind them that the entries for the Edinburgh Marathon are open.
The “UK’s Fastest Marathon” path starts in London and Regent Road, the route leads from the historic Holyrood Palace and through Holyrood Park. It then passes through the Meadowbank stadium, through Leith Links, along the seafront promenade of Portobello and then into East Lothian. The marathon ends at Pinkie Elementary School in Musselburgh.
The challenges range from 5k races to the full marathon, (described above), and take place on May 26 and 27.
See details and registration form here at the Royal Marines Charity website.
This week the Royal Marines also shared in their networks the news that their base at Plymouth-Devon-could become the “superbase” of operations having other bases relocated there, remaining as the center of the Marines.
Among the Commandos and Regiments relocated to the superbase are the HQ 3 Commando Brigade and 30 Commando, Royal Marines currently based at the Stonehouse barracks, and the 29th Royal Artillery Commando Regiment, currently based on the Royal Citadel, 24 members Royal Engineers Regiment and Commando Logistics Regiment, and the 40 Commando Royal Marines from Norton Manor Camp in Somerset.
In the report published by The Herald, some of the advantages that will result from this centralization are: “It will lead to an increased presence within the city of Marines and the economic benefits it entails for the city in general, but there is also improved accommodation and facilities of training, worthy of such an elite force.“
Devonport remains as a hydrographic, meteorological, and amphibious center of expertise as well as the only UK base to refit Royal British Navy submarines.

Another challenge this month, raising funds for the Royal Marines Charity and Veterans for Wildlife, is the crossing of the Orange River by two former Royal Marines, led by Glen Steyn, an Ex Royal Marine from Johannesburg, South Africa.
They will pass through three countries Lesotho, South Africa and Namibia. Beginning in the Lesotho highlands, the route will follow the source river until the river reaches the Atlantic Ocean.
There will be 2200KM completely without help or support as support points, for example.
