- Issue: Spring 2015
in southwestern Vietnam, WWF staff from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City join journalists from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to listen to what fishing families, park rangers and government officials have to say about their lives and the river that delivers so much of what they need.
In Zambia, a game guard tells us what she’s doing to keep elephants and humans safely apart. Scientists use DNA extraction to expose what a polar bear’s footprint has to say. Corporate leaders share their “aha” moments about how fighting climate change is also a boon for the bottom line. And Africa expert Lisa Steel explains why village wisdom should never be ignored.
Perhaps that’s the theme of this issue, and of WWF as a whole: We strive to hear—and to include—voices of conservation from around the world, at every level. We know the importance of asking the right questions and listening for answers from the people who know best.
In that spirit, please watch for our first World Wildlife magazine survey later this year. We need your insights just as we need the voices of those experts in the field.
Thanks. We’re listening.
