Funding report by Tina M Lindsay, Campaign Manager – Chris Packham’s UK Bioblitz Campaign 2018

The Campaign’s costs were privately funded in full and separate to the funds raised via the “Just Giving” Crowdfunding

Total funds received after “Just Giving” Crowdfunding costs: £7,660.81

Of the 50 individual sites Chris Packham’s UK Bioblitz 2018 Campaign visited, 49 were offered up to £150 to fully fund or go towards item/s that would help their grass-roots conservation work on-site or in partnership with education outreach

The site not offered funding is a commercial development

There are 50 listings below as The British Dragonfly Society’s Dragonfly Centre was visited at Wicken Fen and so qualifies for funding
