We are closing this project, because it has not raised any more money for a while. Thank you to all donors who have contributed. We will hold the funds in trust and use them as necessary and when the need arises.
Our focus now shifts to our new survival appeal, designed to help us make it through the coronavirus crisis.
Our coronavirus appeal from 1 April to 1 December 2020 was all about getting our local conservation partners through this crisis. This appeal raised close to €50,000 and an overview of what this money has achieved so far is on our blog. Although there is now light at the end of the pandemic tunnel with several vaccines about to be rolled out (as of early December 2020), restrictions are likely to be with us well into 2021 and beyond, mainly because vaccine rollout across the world is going to take well over a year, perhaps even two or three. This means that on top of the near total loss of income in 2020, it will still take some significant time until expeditions are up and running again, let alone back to something approaching normal. In fact, we do not expect operations to approach something near normal until well into 2022, perhaps even later. All this means that after the coronavirus appeal for our local conservation partners, it is now time to think about Biosphere Expeditions’ survival in these very testing times (see also our situation updates). So please help us survive the crisis, whilst also avoiding redundancies, by giving to this survival appeal. All donations, large or small, are very welcome and highly appreciated.
