Learn more about the Durrell and Royal Marines Charity updates this week in our summary:
The week in the Durrell networks featured World Snake Day “celebrated” on July 16.
In their networks, Durrell recalled Boa’s conservation projects, whose global population is estimated at less than 75 individuals on one of the islands belonging to the Mauricius archipelago, Round Island.
Another species remembered in #WorldSnakeDay was St Lucia, which was once considered extinct, but in 1973 a copy was discovered on the island of Maria Major, just 1km from the sea of St Lucia.
And lastly, Antiguan also featured prominently in the dissemination of species conservation projects in #WorldSnakeDay.
They have also been considered extinct in the 1960s, but with the work of Durrell conservationists in partnership with the government of Antigua and Flora and Fauna International, the species is managing to reproduce itself and reduce the risk of extinction.
Another highlight was the journey of Pat and Wilson coming to an end. They made a long trip through Britain raising funds for Durrell Conservation, and recorded everything on Pat’s Instagram. In three months it has reached the target of more than ₤ 1,000 in donations.
On start of this jorney, Pat declared:
“What makes Durrell so unique is that they focus on the little guys. Animals so small you’ve probably never heard of them. Myself and Wilson are keen to spread the word and let people know about the amazing work they do worldwide!”
And ending the week’s updates on Durrell, the organization’s page shared that artistic message, drawing attention to another endangered species, the Orangutan.

Highlights of the Royal Marines week on social networks include the RM work experience week with 30 students from Plymouth region schools.
First, students from diferents high schools went through a selection process that included physical activities, Royal Navy history tests, and psychometric assessments. The 30 best participating students were selected for the one-week experience course.
Students visited several Royal Marine establishments, including the 42nd Bickleigh Barracks Command, the 30th Stonehouse Command and the Royal Marines home at the Commando Training Center in Lympstone. They also learned the “art” of camouflage and manipulated state-of-the-art equipment to get a real sense of various Royal Marine routine activities.
According to the RM, “This initiative has been running for over 10 years and historically over 75% of the students who attend the weeks work experience go on and apply to join the Royal Marines…”
The Royal Marines wished a special congratulations on their nets to Mr. Jim Crombie, who completed his 108th birthday, making him the most “experienced” Royal Marine.
Mr. Crombie served the Royal Marines during World War II, and celebrated his birthday with cake with cognac, and the wishes of the happiest anniversary of the entire corporation.

The Commando Challenge page continues to share the obstacles of the races – which this year takes place on October 14 and 15 – and this week was the turn of Peter’s Pool, formerly known to the officials who face the test Final to win his green beret, and also for those who take part in the 5k or 10k challenges.
Recalling that entries for the event remain open and all amounts raised are reversed in favor of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and Royal Marines Charity, of which Henry Cavill is ambassador.
And to close this edition of #PHCBR’s Charity Update, the elegant Royal Marines Band, straight from the Commando Training Center.
We wish you all a great weekend!
