My long-gone friend and colleague Max Nicholson would be shocked rigid to see what is happening with the Sixth Great Extinction, but at the same I suspect he would relish some of the news. Learned today that my long-standing colleague at SustainAbility, Kavita Prakash-Mani, now also a member of the Volans Board, has been appointed WWF’s new Global Conservation Director. My heart lifts.
Also in recent news on the conservation front, I have been asked to renew my term on the WWF UK Council of Ambassadors, and to join the Board of Conservation X Labs – delighted to accept in both cases.
Wildlife projected me into environmentalism and sustainability. Now it seems, conservation is becoming a real Thing in my life. Pay-back time?
