Fire coral overtaking soft coral

Projects in the UK Overseas Territories

The 14 UK Overseas Territories are a fascinating and diverse set of islands. Through various projects, we're supporting our UKOT partners in the protection and management of their fragile environments and species.

The UK Overseas Territories are home to countless species including sharks, penguins, whales and seabirds that are found in habitats including coastal mangroves, deep sea mounts, polar seas and the world’s largest coral atoll.

For over 20 years, we’ve been working in the Caribbean UK Overseas Territories on species conservation. Our key focus now is supporting our Caribbean partners in significantly improving management of their existing Marine Protected Area (MPA) networks.
