The Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) in the UK has recently concluded a project to investigate sources of financial and academic assistance available to the UK Overseas Territories for nature conservation projects. A database of these resources and more information about funding sources is available on the JNCC website. Hopefully these resources will be of use to BSAP partners in carrying out biodiversity project in Bermuda.
