A vision for UN World Wildlife Day 2019 – Shamwari Diaries: Intermission


Today is United Nations World Wildlife Day; a day of global observance on the UN calendar especially dedicated to wildlife.

World Wildlife Day 2019 carries the specific theme of “Life below water: for people and planet“, which aligns with goal 14 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. It also represents a chance to consider life on Earth as a whole, and the vision that the UN’s General Assembly and its 193 Member States from across the globe have for the future of our planet’s wildlife.

On a personal level, it has given me the perfect opportunity to take a break from my weekly Shamwari Diaries blog episodes (thank you so much for the positive feedback on this blog series!) to reflect on how that time in my life has inspired my current work and vision.

Sharing my Voice for Conservation through Wildlife Times magazine

Therefore, I’m delighted to share with you ‘My Vision for Wildlife‘; an interview included in this quarter’s Wildlife Times magazine from Born Free Foundation.

Of course, it includes the profound influence that my time volunteering at Shamwari Game Reserve through Born Free has had on the career path I have chosen, and how it has even led to my becoming a Trustee of the Born Free Foundation for the past year.
