Here's a story to warm your eco-cockles. Five primary schools in the Kurdish part of Iraq have undertaken a nestbox project to make and put up birdboxes in their area. The full story is HERE.
So many of such projects, initiated and funded by Western European countries or organisations (in this case, Birdlife International) only survive as long as the foreign investment and help are there, and then wither when the locals take over full responsibility. I have a feeling, though, that the Kurds are made of sterner stuff, and that this project will prosper.
