Here at The War on Wildlife Project we were thinking that as us campaigners, conservationists and activists can’t get out to meet and see each other now, how about creating something to bring the conservation community together – everyone from individuals to grassroots organisations to larger charities – something that reminds us all that we’re still out there, still working, but that also shows the human side of things during this COVID-19 crisis.
An ongoing series of short podcast conversations we could think of as ‘check-ins’ (as in ‘we’re checking in to make sure we’re all okay’) – chats about how we’re getting on, how we’re adapting as campaigners, how being out in Nature is helping us cope.
Now, we appreciate that everyone has Facebook, Twitter, their own blogs even, but perhaps bringing everyone together like this in one place could really create an interesting set of viewpoints/tips/different thinking – and maybe even keep us from feeling alone…
That’s the idea and we’re very grateful to author, conservationist, campaigner and all-around good guy Dr Mark Avery for saying he thought it was worth trying, and for being first up to kick this new series off.
“…and we do think the licences [Natural Resources Wales] issued are terrible – they’re awful…they’re unlawful, we believe…they’re just rubbish…”
Checking-in…with Dr Mark Avery
