Vote for Conservation!

A tricky one this - you can register your vote for your favourite project with the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA). The projects in the running are:

Having walked the Three Peaks I have seen the state of the paths there, and some maintenance is clearly needed. But the Fix the Fells project to implement some repairs to Striding Edge on Helvellyn and Scafell Pike is also worth supporting to ensure that future generations can enjoy these fells without further damaging the fragile ecology.  Again, the Ennerdale project to safeguard the oak forests and the red squirrel population is a fantastic project and surely deserving of support. And Snowdonia is also an area of outstanding importance and beauty.

Is there any way of giving all these projects some funding? Anyway voting finishes tomorrow so cast your vote asap and give one of these projects the chance to win up to 30,000 Euros in funding.
