Think Pink appeal update – Thank You!

By Venancia.Ndoo
Our recent appeal to help BirdLife save the Lesser Flamingo at Lake Natron in Tanzania has so far raised over £20,000. “Thank you so much to those who were so generous in their support for our Think Pink campaign to save Lake Natron”, said BirdLife’s Jane Gaithuma. “We’re now working with our BirdLife Partner in Tanzania (Wildlife Conservation Society of Tanzania) to accelerate a new project to improve the protection status of the lake, and to work with local people to alleviate poverty. We’re also keeping a keen eye on any proposed developments at the lake and its vicinity to ensure we stop any further threats to the Lesser Flamingo's home”.
