The Parish of St Saviour are delighted to announce that we are now using "Our Earth Paper" this environmentally friendly paper helps support Durrell with their project in the South American Rainforest and their support for the Black Lion Tamarins (BLT) who are at risk of extinction, their numbers are still decreasing and they have become isolated due to deforestation. Durrell are the only place outside of Brazil who are breeding them, they are the rarest of the New World monkeys.
At this Rainforest, Durrell have taken in landless people and given them a small a piece of land with shelter so they can grow their own food, they in return help to manage the forest rich in biodiversity with over 150 different species of trees. These are grown in a special nursery and once grown planted to create corridors of forest so that the BLT's can meet and breed with other BLT families.
