WORKING WITH WILDLIFE: SOME SNAPSHOTS OF 2020

Emily Taylor, Communications Officer, emilyt@ewt.org.za The year 2020 has undoubtedly been one for the history books. While much of what made this year extraordinary was directly or indirectly a result of COVID-19, it is important to remember the full picture: the limitations, disappointments, delays, and much, much loss, but also the achievements, innovative solutions, connections, and significant technological strides that have been made across the world. These innovations have enabled the continued functioning of many businesses by making working from home possible or developing online platforms or delivery services to survive the lockdown restrictions.

A year in the life of the EWT is never dull, and instead of slowing down during lockdown, we picked up the pace and made sure that despite the challenges, we found inventive ways to meet our conservation objectives, and we achieved great things for wildlife, landscapes, and people. Here are some snapshots from a few of our programmes’ highlights of working with wildlife in 2020
