Friends of OLF
We have launched a series of exciting and innovative new initiatives in both the UK and The Gambia that will help to inspire and enable the next generation of conservation leaders.
We have ambitious plans for the future but they will only be achievable with adequate resources. Creating a group of supporters who share our vision is essential to our long-term success.
Through our Friends of OLF scheme we are building a community of like-minded people who genuinely want to make a difference. We believe that our projects – grassroots in their approach, but international in their scope – can have a real and lasting impact. But we need your help to make it happen.
To join the scheme we simply ask that you make a monthly donation of £5.00 (or more if you are able). Your money will enable us to:
- Run our Osprey Club scheme in The Gambia
- Develop and expand our Osprey Leadership Academy in the UK, which includes our bespoke leadership programme for early-career conservationists: “Becoming A Conservation Leader”.
- Support early-career conservationists both in The Gambia and the UK as part of our Evolving Conservation Leaders scheme.
- In return for your generosity we’ll provide regular updates on the projects you are supporting; hold events and get-togethers throughout the year, including an annual Osprey Cruise on the Rutland Belle at Rutland Water; and provide the opportunity to join a visit to The Gambia and Senegal. We’ll also send you a signed copy of The Rutland Water Ospreys (RRP £20.00), which was written by our Founder, Dr. Tim Mackrill.
