If she could have one wish it would be for people to be as excited about wildlife conservation as they are about World Cup Football.
Only conservation is capable of adding to the beauty of the natural world, by restoring habitats, returning locally extinct creatures back to the wild, protecting what is already lovely..
It is a legacy of regeneration, of life itself. Wildlife conservation ... quite literally creates life where there was none before, creates homes for animals which would otherwise not exist.
