Training 2,500 leaders in conservation

By Conservation Le...

The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) recently hosted a special evening to celebrate its 25th Anniversary. This event took place in Cambridge, UK, which is where the programme was conceived and initiated by BirdLife International back in 1985. From humble beginnings, the CLP has gone on to support 2,500 conservationists and fund over 480 projects. The stars of the evening were three CLP award winners, Gao Yufang, Haitham Ibrahim and Blanca Huertas who gave first-hand accounts of how the CLP has made a difference for them and for conservation in their home countries. Robyn Dalzen, CLP Executive Manager said, "It's amazing to see how the programme has grown. Here's to 25 more successful years!". To find out more about CLP click here.
