Five projects focusing on biodiversity across the UK will receive almost €30 (£26m) from EU funds, the European Commission announced yesterday.

The latest round of funding for the EU’s LIFE programme will support two projects in the UK to restore sand dunes and wetlands, two projects seeking to protect native species from invasive predators, and a project to improve the condition of Welsh rainforests.

In addition, the UK will benefit from funding for transnational projects, including lowering the carbon footprint of particle accelerators, monitoring the health impacts of nano-materials, reducing the environmental impact of fish farms and insulating buildings with recycled paper and hemp.
