Go­ril­las and tigers to ben­e­fit from aid

Yorkshire Post - - POLITICS & ECONOMY -

The Gov­ern­ment has pledged £35m in aid to help tackle the il­le­gal wildlife trade, de­for­esta­tion and the ex­tinc­tion of en­dan­gered species. Around £33.5m of the fund­ing will sup­port new, sus­tain­able in­dus­try which pro­tects the en­vi­ron­ment and pro­vides jobs to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

It will help pro­tect species threat­ened by ex­tinc­tion, in­clud­ing the chim­panzee, go­rilla, orang­utan and tiger.
