I very much support the work of The Rufford Foundation and especially their Small Grants programme. It has been vital in identifying in-country scientists at the very early stages of their careers and providing targeted support to enable them to achieve their goal of making a difference in terms of conservation. Many recipients have gone on to be key influencers at a national and sometimes global level. Without Rufford’s support, this would not have happened.
