Wildlife and Conservation Partnership
The Tristan da Cunha Government, through its Natural Resources Department, works in partnership with UK conservation organisations (e.g. RSPB and UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum). Individual projects have been funded by the UK Government's Darwin Initiative and Overseas Territories Environment Programme. Tristan has also benefited from ongoing support from staff at the University of Cape Town who are involved with on-going research into the Tristan da Cunha Islands' unique wildlife. The close links between these partners is reflected in team work to create and maintain the Wildlife and Conservation section of
