Chagos outreach project

One of our missions is to enhance people’s appreciation of wildlife, and in a bid to help connect UK Chagossian’s with their wildlife heritage we are pleased to be involved in a two stage programme developed by the Zoological Society of London, which aims to increase environmental awareness within UK Chagossian communities.

The Manchester Museum has been involved in supporting this great initiative by hosting a joint event aimed at promoting environmental issues and highlighting the unique and exciting wildlife to be found in Chagos, a very  special protected area. Tropical marine and terrestrial topics, such as coral reef and island ecology, and conservation were a main focus. The initiative is proving to be a wonderful success, and is being thoroughly enjoyed by all involved. We are extremely pleased to be collaborating with ZSL and supporting this superb project.
