The Audlind Nature Fund was founded at a special ceremony at the National Museum of Iceland on Monday, with the goal of guarding the principal resources of Iceland’s nature, maintaining their diversity and protecting their wildlife.
“We have high hopes for this fund, especially at this time,” planner Salvör Jónsdóttir, who is also the chairman of Audlind’s board, told Morgunbladid.
Jónsdóttir said few things are as important today as establishing trust in the international community and that protecting natural resources could prove an important factor to that end.
Anyone who is interested can become a founding member of Audlind through the fund’s website, audlind.org. The fund will be operated with voluntary contributions.
Audlind’s initial objectives are reclaiming Iceland’s wetlands and saving Iceland’s eagle population from extinction.
