Conservation efforts threatened by financial loss
It didn’t occur to me really until now, of the impact on conservation and wildlife charities the coronavirus restrictions will have. Not least the cancellation of marathons and public events. Many of these charities rely on ‘gate fees’ (eg RSPB reserves) and onsite cafes, shops, events etc to raise an important part of their running costs. In addition, as people enter into financial hardship, there will likely be a very significant drop in online donations, purchases, renewal of memberships, being able to replace or maintain ringing equipment etc
The Whipsnade Zoos who play an incredible role in conservation work are already appealing for help. https://donate.zsl.org/support-zsl-l...hipsnade-zoos/
and it won’t be long before rehabilitation centres like RSPCA Mallydams, Tiddlywinks and other rescue charities who rely on open days and public events to raise maintenance costs will also start feeling the pinch.
Short of trying to source our online purchases from wildlife groups and rescue charities (which is not likely to be relevant in most cases) or maintaining our memberships etc what else can we do but hope many of the smaller sanctuaries and conservation charities don’t fold.
I wonder what the longterm impact if any will be on conservation and wildlife rescue? Is there anything other than donating money that we can do to help?
