One of the ways in which our organisation survives in these difficult times is through donations from individuals, averaging about £20 each.

Our website is seen as an important source of information on biodiversity in the UKOTs and its conservation, and on some other aspects of their heritage. It has proved impossible in recent years to get grant-aid to fund this general but important work. Now is the time to ask you to help us continue to both manage this site and our project activities for conservation and environmental education. If everyone reading this now gave a small amount, our fundraising for the year would be done in a week.

We are a small non-profit organisation (staffed largely by unpaid volunteers) with very few costs - but costs, which need to be met. If our website is useful to you, please take one minute to keep us online and busy for another year. Help us to devote less time to fundraising and get back to more on-the-ground conservation.         Thank you.

The UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum (UKOTCF) exists to promote the coordinated conservation of the diverse and increasingly threatened plant and animal species and natural habitats of the UK Territories Overseas. It aims to do this by providing assistance in the form of expertise, information and liaison between non-governmental organisations and governments, both in the UK and in the Territories themselves.
