The Henry Cavill Charity Updates features a summary of the week’s top news from the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and Royal Marines Charity, social causes Henry Cavill is ambassador. Through its social networks it supports, divulges and participates in events raising funds for them.
Welcome to Durrell’s week! A criminal action is quickly taking the Ploughshare turtle to extinction in nature.
According to a recent reserch, co-authored by Durrell scientists and conservationists, and researchers from the Universities of Antananarivo and Oxford, populations have fallen catastrophically in the last 10 years. This is thanks to illegal hunting activities that have had an impact on this species since the beginning of the 21st century.
Record numbers of captures by the authorities, combined with data from a field survey conducted throughout Baly Bay National Park in north-western Madagascar, point out that illegal international pet trade would be the main reason for the rapid and severe decline in turtles.
National and international organizations are joining forces and building important partnerships including the Voahary Gasy Alliance and Madagascar Voakajy Alliance and even the Madagascar government to save not only the Poughshare turtle but also other highly endangered turtle species in Madagascar.
Ploughshare tortoises are in danger of extinction! 🐢A new study by Durrell scientists has reveled for the first time that populations of the Critically Endangered Ploughshare tortoise have more than halved in just 10 years. In 2015, the estimated population was less than 500 tortoises.Read more at: https://www.durrell.org/wildlife/news/illegal-pet-trade-driving-ploughshare-tortoise-extinction/

One of the main highlights that marked the week of the Royal Marines was the Commando Challenge, which took place on the 13th and 14th of October, where more than a thousand people attended, even under heavy rain, to enjoy a lively, challenging and overtaking weekend with Aston Martin Bristol as the main sponsor.
The event, which has already featured the participation of Henry Cavill, offers the unique opportunity for civilians to participate in the resistance course that Royal Marines recruits face during a 32-week training session, allowing them to go through the experiences of sheep diving, Peter’s pool, smart tubes, among others.
The challenge is carried out between 5 and 10 km and all proceeds are earmarked for Devon Air Ambulance and Royal Marines Charity.
This year the event introduced a novelty, the Dog Show, a challenge especially designed for the four legged friends of the participants of the Commando Challenge, which had as organizer and sponsor the Corner House Vts in Exmouth.
It was a super high-spirited weekend, with bands and several food stalls. The Royal Marines Charity thanked everyone who participated, as well as volunteers, sponsors and partners. To know more about the event and check all the images go to the Commando Challenge Facebook page and have fun or get excited.
Following the success of the Commando Challenge, the Royal Marines Charity are proud to announce that they are supporting the North American team 65 Degrees North in the epic expedition of Munda Biddi.
