RSPB Scotland is part of the RSPB, which works across the UK for the conservation of birds and wildlife, and for the sustainable management of our economy. We are the UK partner of Birdlife International, a global partnership. The Malawian partner of Birdlife International is the Wildlife and Environment Society of Malawi (www.wildlifemalawi.org).,,In 2013, as part of the Livingstone bicentenary, the two organisations, co-operated (with support from the Scottish Government and the Scotland Malawi Foundation) to produce a special, limited edition pin-badge featuring a Livingstones Turaco a bird of sub-tropical forests in Malawi, named for Davids brother Charles. Funds raised from the sale of these badges will be donated to WESM to support biodiversity-related studies by students at the University of Malawi. See http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/ourwork/b/scotland/archive/2013/09/12/limited-edition-pin-badge-to-celebrate-livingstone-39-s-bicentenary.aspx for full details.,,We hope that this small joint project may the first of more and a continuing and developing relationship between these two Birdlife partners in the spirit of the historic links between Scotland and Malawi.,
