Title: Darwin Initiative
Url: http://darwin.defra.gov.uk/
Publisher: United Kingdom. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Description: As a part of Britain's Department for Environment and Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the Darwin Initiative is designed to help countries that are "rich in biodiversity but poor in financial resources." Visitors to this site can learn more about projects funded under the auspices of this laudable venture, learn about their success stories, and also find out more about their partner institutions and organizations. So far, the Darwin Initiative has funded well over 600 projects in various host countries, and visitors to the homepage should make their way to the "Latest News" area to get a sense of their work and current projects. On the left-hand side of the homepage, visitors can also take in the "Darwin News" updates, information about their workshop proceedings, and thematic reviews, briefing notes, and reports. The site is rounded out by the "Project Focus" feature, which takes a close look into projects that include efforts to protect Indonesian songbirds and their quest to protect the largest wetlands in the world, which happen to be in Tomsk Province, Siberia.
