On June 26th at a St. James's Palace luncheon hosted by HRH The Princess Royal, the announcement was made that the Island Foundation would donate a further US$750,000 to the Habitat Restoration project through SGHT's sister organisation FOSGI. The funds will be used to pay for bait in Phase 2 of the work.
Minister for the Natural Environment and Fisheries Richard Benyon said:'I’ve been captivated by South Georgia, ever since reading of the plight of Sir Ernest Shackleton as a child.With the centenary of this famous expedition just around the corner, we have a once in a lifetime chance to help return this precious habitat to an eeven better state than that in which Shackleton would have first discovered it. I’m delighted that the UK Government has been able to offer its support to this valuable work and hope that others may be encouraged do the same.’
