Collectively, the UK's South Atlantic Overseas Territories are breeding range states for 12 of the 30 species currently listed by the Agreement. The ACAP co-ordination project was established to ensure coherence of action between the Territories, assist with the planning and implementation of albatross and petrel conservation work, take responsibility for the reporting requirements and lead on critical seabird by-catch mitigation work in international fisheries fora.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Overseas Territories are highly dependent on the assets provided by their natural environment – their terrestrial and marine ecosystems – for their economic wellbeing. The long-term management of these assets is essential for the development of sustainable (‘green') economies in the Territories.</p><p>The objective of the environmental mainstreaming initiative is to assist individual Territories to identify the key issues that need to be addressed to ensure the environment is properly taken into account in all aspects of economic and infrastructure planning. Key issues include proper provision for waste management and the need to better understand the value of the environment to local economies and communities.</p><p>To date, three environmental mainstreaming projects have been managed by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee on behalf of the FCO and Defra, in the Falkland Islands, British Virgin Islands and Anguilla.</p><p>In addition, we have also funded projects in Anguilla through our Darwin Initiative Challenge Fund in 2012 and they are now developing a National Ecosystem Assessment using Darwin Plus funding. The purpose of this is to move towards a green economy by strengthening environmental management and sustainable growth, raising awareness of the value of ecosystems to the economy and providing evidence-based implementation of green policies.</p><p> </p>

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine's wildlife policy statement of April 2013 concludes that it is satisfied that the culling of infected badgers, which is underpinned by research studies and sound science, has led to a significant reduction in the incidence of TB in cattle over the past decade.</p><p><a href="http://www.agriculture.gov.ie/animalhealthwelfare/diseasecontrol/bovinetbbrucellosiseradicationschemes/wildlifepolicybadgers/" target="_blank">http://www.agriculture.gov.ie/animalhealthwelfare/diseasecontrol/bovinetbbrucellosiseradicationschemes/wildlifepolicybadgers/ </a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
