We have applied for Leonardo Mobility funding for our visits to Hungary and Romania, and these will be primarily for graduates in biological or ecological science subjects who are currently unemployed, or employed in fields other than conservation or ecology.

We have also applied for Leonardo da Vinci and Grundtvig funding to continue our partnerships with the LPO in La Brenne, central France; the NGO Daphne and the Town Council in Ždánice in the Czech Republic; Fertö Hanság National Park in eastern Hungary; the NGOs ETNA and CMoK in Poland; and our partners in the Picos de Europa in northern Spain.
