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.

Treasure Islands

We are excited to announce the release of Britain's Treasure Islands book and documentary series by Stewart McPherson and Redfern Natural History Productions.

The three-part documentaries series will start on BBC4 on April 12th at 9.00 pm. But before then, you can watch a free mini-documentary on Gibraltar here:

The project to document all of the wildlife, cultures and histories of the United Kingdom's Overseas Territories took four years and the result is incredible.

5,350 copies of the 704-page book have kindly been donated by Lord Michael Ashcroft to every secondary school in the UK and her Overseas Territories. Stewart McPherson was also extremely generous by giving copies of photos and film footage to locals as well as personally donating £21,300 which he divided between the territories to support conservation across the UKOTs.
