We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Guilia Maria Crespi, founder of FAI - Fondo Ambiente Italiano.

At the helm of FAI, she devoted her life to the conservation of Italy's heritage and led the organisation to its early successes.

Signora Crespi has left a profound impression on the National Trust movement internationally and her legacy will live on in the beautiful places throughout Italy that she so fiercely protected.

On Wednesday 1 July, the National Trust of Fiji Director visited the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park and the Momi Battery Historical Park to check in on the rangers.

At the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park, she met with the ranger team and then inspected the new interpretation displays being installed in the Park's Visitor Information Centre.

Then she travelled to the Momi Battery Historical Park, where she also met with staff and inspected the park.

The rangers were happy to see the Director (physically), as it has been awhile since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown.

The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park has re-opened for business (since June 20), while the Momi Battery Historical Park will be re-opening later this July.

The Director said that the re-opening of the Parks are a good thing for Fiji in a time like this, as they provide a venue for people to unwind and continue to enjoy Nature.

For more information on visiting the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park and the Momi Battery Historical Park, please check out their facebook pages. International National Trusts Organisation (INTO)

We really enjoyed this update from our member at the National Trust for the Cayman Islands, showing the PPE that has been brought with their TAP-INTO COVID-19 grant.

It's a relief to know that the endangered blue iguana pictured is in good hands, have a look at the Cayman NT's programme here: https://nationaltrust.org.ky/our-work/conservation/blue-iguana-conservation/

INTO celebrates the hard work of heritage trusts across the world, who hold our natural and cultural heritage in stewardship for future generations. This #WorldEnvironmentDay, we are proud to advocate for our members, who remain committed to their mission in spite of the uncertain times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, they need our support.

At INTO, we are grateful to the Helen Hamlyn Trust for their support in funding sixteen emergency grants to INTO members around the world. These grants will contribute to unexpected costs and help ensure that heritage trusts can continue to protect sites local to you after this pandemic.
