A bursary enabled Vicky White to travel to Gibraltar to study and raise awareness of the Barbary macaques as part of her MA course at the Royal college of Art
Stephanie Black aimed, for the sake of wildlife and the environment, to influence consumers to recycle more and to refuse supermarket plastic bags, by producing free cotton bags with seabird designs
Christopher Wallbank used his bursary to produce the Unbound Amazonia Field Guide of local flora and fauna for use at the Manu Biosphere Reserve of Eastern Peru.
