@Leala thanks for sharing. This is a great opportunity for early career conservationists to get a head start with funding their field projects. I hope graduates of WildTeam training courses will apply
Hello Tony, thank you for sharing this, it sounds like a great idea and really well marketed as well, so I hope it is selling well. I see they do sticky rice, this was one of my favourite things when I was in Cambodia! I've not seen Ibis rice in the UK, but if I do you shall be one of the first to hear about my excitement!
Hi Beth, The plan is to launch Ibis Rice in the UK. Jasmine rice is what's being marketed. It's already up and running in Singapore, Hong Kong, and soon Canada. Nick Spencer is the Cambodia-based British CEO of the company that is managing the project.

This sounds interesting! I didn't know bushmeat was an issue with the Giant ibis. I am looking forward to learning more.
Hi Beth, Yes this the background to this particular situation is described here
Hi Tony, Thanks for sharing - exciting to read about these SMART developments. Would be great to add it one of our rooms on WildHub so that people can easily find it again. Perhaps the 'Management and organisational development' room?
In your published post, you can click on 'edit' and select the room of your choice in the right-hand menu when you are in the 'editing a post' interface. Let me know if you have any questions and have a nice day!
Hi Thirza, I've reassigned the post to Management and organizational development but I wonder if WildHub could have a Conservation Technology room where this might sit and attract more readers?
