Saving Golden-shouldered Parrots on Artemis requires bold and coordinated action. The “Artemis Nature Fund” brings together the necessary expertise and support to make it happen.
The Fund has been established with best-practice financial and governance systems. A management committee provides the Fund with advice about priority conservation actions.
