City group's pounds 100,000 grant to aid wolves.
Education 4 Conservation (E4C), a not-for-profit organisation, is based at Little Heath Industrial Estate in Old Church Road, Foleshill.
The money, from the government's Darwin Initiative, will help set up a large carnivore education centre in Bulgaria - where wolves are feared and many have a bounty on their head equivalent to a week's wages. Money will be spent on training staff and equipping the centre to raise awareness about wolves and reduce the culling.
E4C director Denise Taylor said: "There are centuries-old attitudes to crack.
"We need to help local people understand that conserving the environment and wildlife can pay as well as the current financial rewards they receive from culling wolves."
