At the annual meeting of the advisory committee of The Loro Parque Foundation, held recently in Puerto de La Cruz, it was decided to allocate almost US$2 million to conservation projects to be carried out during 2020 across five continents. With this figure, the total amount that the Foundation has dedicated to the protection of nature will reach US$21.2 million.
Projects focusing on the Canary Islands and the rest of Macaronesia (Cape Verde, Madeira, and the Azores), in particular, will receive 37 per cent of the funds (over US$706,000), followed by the threatened species and ecosystems of the American continent, which will receive US$667,000 this year. Other projects in Spain and the rest of Europe amount to US$233,000 and African projects will receive US$128,000 next year. Asia, with over US$79,000, and Australia-Oceania, with more than US$45,000, close the financing that reaches the five continents, and which will be distributed amongst 50 conservation and research projects that will be implemented by 34 NGOs and universities around the world.
