I see the discussion opened last month on this topic has now closed. Perhaps this can be added, please? It is from the British Trust for Ornithology’s latest newsletter.
We have been working with Ukrainian colleagues in Polesia since 2019. We are appalled by the violent invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops and stand in full support of our Ukrainian friends.Our project partner Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) has been working to get partners and staff in Ukraine to safety, though most remain on site, helping where they can. They are working to ensure the twenty protected areas they care for can cope with the influx of people fleeing their homes. They are providing refugees with sleeping bags, heaters and torches, as well as supporting the protected areas’ running costs at a time when other funding has been cut off. We hope that the global support of Ukraine will allow the conflict to end swiftly, and that we will be able to continue to work with our colleagues to learn about and protect the country’s precious habitats and wildlife.
