Dear MARMAM

We have recently completed the a short film (in two languages) to publicize the Darwin Sustainable Artisinal Fisheries Initiative in Peru; a highly collaborative project lead by NGO Prodelphinus.

Participatory work will quantify levels of bycatch of marine vertebrates (mammals, turtles and birds) and seek mitigation strategies within the extensive small scale fisheries in the country.

The films details what I think is a near ideal "Darwin Initiative" project as well as outlining the salient features of the funding initiative. For those working in countries "Rich in biodiversity and poor in resources", the UK Government's Darwin Initiative constitutes a sizeable source of funding for medium sized projects that should be investigated (£80 million on 728 projects since 1992).

All the best
