Check out more Charity Updates! The weekly newsletter that brings the main news of social causes that Henry Cavill supports: the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and Royal Marines Charity.
On October 5, 1984, Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, opened the Durrell International Training Center. And we want to start this week’s UP by congratulating the Durrell Conservation Academy for its 34 years.
The Academy prepares people who want to work in Durrell’s veterinary and animal departments. There they learn practical aspects of care and maintenance of animals in a captive environment. We’re very proud to see how far Durrell Conservation Academy has come and the impact that academy-trained trainees have had on conservation projects around the world.
Have you ever thought to learn skills such as population monitoring techniques, field sampling, and practical skills in GIS?
Check out Durrell’s website and learn how to take part in the Certification and Post-Graduation course on Species Management in Danger of Extinction. Remembering that the registration ends on October 12th.
Durrell could never do his job if he could not count on the help of people willing to contribute to his important mission. So if you live in Jersey and would like to volunteer, please join the team and use your passion to help save the species!
Check out Better Impact app website and choose where you want to act as a regular Durrell volunteer. Durrell is in need of people available for volunteer work throughout the week, but especially on Friday for activities at the Durrell Charity Shop, Boo at the Zoo, Durrell Dash and Zoo Ranger. It’s a great way to meet new people, develop skills, give back to the community, and make a difference.
Unfortunately, news coming from the Galapagos Islands is not good. More than 100 giant turtle cubs of the species Chelonoidis vicina and Chelonoidis gunther were stolen from the island. They were taken from a breeding center on Isla Isabela.
“All were taken at once, in full 123. It was a robbery,” Washington Paredes, a local politician, told the AFP news agency. He also complained that the facility where theft occurred was poorly protected, with no security cameras or light sensors.
The Galapagos Islands are famous for their flora and fauna and this attracts thousands of tourists every year. They are 3,000 square kilometers of protected habitat and home to many species of animals that are not found anywhere else on the planet. What has unfortunately turned exotic species into a target for wildlife criminals.
Here the full story about this criminal act, against the turtle hatchlings, on The Telegraph.
On October 10, it was Mental Health Day. And Durrell posted a video on his Youtube account to highlight the importance of reconnecting people with nature.
Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust’s strategy is to make 1,000,000 people better connected to nature by 2025, when founder Gerald Durrell would celebrate his 100th birthday. A daring and ambitious goal, which also involves the recovery of animals, the renewal of ecosystems and the renewal of people. Do not just make people care more about the natural world, but also improve your physical and mental health.
Please help Durrell continue the beautiful work of saving endangered species and creating a wilder, healthier and more colorful world. Sign in at Durrell’s website and learn more.
The week in the Royal Marines’ networks began with the arrival of the Royal Navy‘s flagship HMS Albion arriving in Oman to lead since 2002 the largest combined military exercise for UK forces, Saif Sareea (Swift Sword).
Along with fellow Omani and temperatures of 40 Celsius degrees, more than 4,000 MRI officers will be tested in the coming weeks on the harsh desert sands. Access the Royal Navy Website and learn more about this operation.
And on Mental Health Day (10 October), the pages of the Royal Marines Charity once again revealed that earlier this year the team Norway 75 Challenge began a historic journey to raise awareness of the Royal Marines’ charity and their efforts to support good mental health – Good Mental Health – Traversing Norway by land and sea, they recount heroic stories from World War II.
Over the past 10 years, more than 1,000 marines have been diagnosed with mental health issues, with veterans and reservists reporting even higher rates. There is also the growing secondary trauma presented by the families of those suffering from PTSD, as from other mental illnesses.
Acesse the website of the Norway 75 Challenge team and know all about this charity and know all about this charity. Help them maintain support for the Royal Marines Charity by donating through the Just Giving Site. All proceeds will be earmarked to preserve the provision of life support for the Royal Marines, their families and veterans.
