Conservation Lessons of the UK Overseas Territories


Conservation Lessons of the UK Overseas Territories

The 14 UK Overseas Territories have 20 times the biodiversity of the UK, including over 1,000 unique species that occur nowhere else on earth. As remote islands and peninsulas, the UK Overseas Territories harbour fragile ecosystems that have been severely impacted by human activities, introduced non-native species and countless other processes. Hundreds of species across the Territories are now at the bring of extinction, but the dedicated and determined efforts of conservationists on all of the UK Overseas Territories are working to safeguard the Territories’ wildlife for the world of tomorrow. This film follows a few of the conservation stories from across the Territories.

Please note: although complementary to the BBC FOUR series, the 40 short mini-documentaries are not commissioned or editorially overseen by BBC.
