Helping Hand Trust - Conservation for the Environment

Our charity's main aims are marine conservation and dolphin research. We specialise in Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) on marinas and golf courses and constructed Europe's first artificial reef. During regular boat and diving expeditions we monitor local marine life; our findings have been featured internationally at conferences and in the media. We assist scholars from all over the world in their research and also engage in terrestrial research and conservation projects. These include projects as diverse as bee-keeping and primatology, the founder of the Helping Hand Trust, Dr Eric Shaw, is also contracted via the Gibraltar Government to supervise the free-ranging monkeys within Gibraltar's Upper Rock Nature Reserve.
