The financial systems within core DEFRA do not identify conservation charities specifically. The following table is therefore based on officials' determination of which charities out of those that have received payment from core DEFRA could be considered to be conservation charities.

The following table shows payments to these charities relating to each of the financial years 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13. Information relating to 2013-14 will be available in July 2014, after the Department's accounts for 2013-14 have been audited and published.

To determine which funding was specifically a grant rather than a payment would incur disproportionate cost.
