Founded in 1986, the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum (UKOTCF) is a UK-based non-government organisation, which exists to protect and to promote biodiversity and other heritage conservation in the UK’s Overseas Territories (UKOTs). It does this by inter alia supporting capacity building; strategic planning; deployment of specialist volunteers; developing and running conservation and education projects with local partners; sharing ideas and experiences and providing advice to decision makers. It involves bringing together a wide network of bodies in the UKOTs, and supporting organisations in Britain and elsewhere. More information is available at www.ukotcf.org.
