Conservation in the age of Covid: Adapting to the loss of tourism

Conservation areas and the communities living in them are being forced to adjust to the dramatic decline in tourism during the pandemic, leading to loss of work, reduced incomes and a return to damaging activities, such as poaching.

How are these communities responding? In this webinar, practitioners in Asia, Africa and Latin America, as well as the CEO of Fauna & Flora International, discuss solutions to address the crisis facing conservation.

Speakers

  • Joanna Elliott – Senior Director Conservation Partnerships, Fauna & Flora International
  • Amanda Acosta – Executive Director, Belize Audubon Society
  • Justine Vaz – General Manager, The Habitat Foundation, Malaysia
  • Neila Manjate – Manager of Agricultural Livelihoods, Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique
