Darwin Initiative Newsletter March 2022: Charismatic Conservation


Our latest newsletter launched in March 2022 focuses on “Charismatic Conservation” and features both Darwin Initiative and Darwin Plus projects. In this edition of the newsletter, we hear from a number projects working on
protecting well-known charismatic species such as sea turtles in Chagos Archipelago, Uganda’s national bird,
the Grey Crowned Crane, and the emblematic Tamaraw of Mindoro, Philippines.

This edition also sheds light on species that receive less attention, highlighting how projects are challenging traditional understandings of charismatic features while demonstrating how public awareness and knowledge of a species can reconstruct how we define charisma.

We hope that enjoy this edition!
