All across the globe people are out there, fighting at the forefront of conservation. We at Future For Nature Academy try very hard to bring the stories of these conservation heroes across. Lectures, movie nights and workshops are some of the ways to achieve that goal, but these activities will never truly do justice to the situation in the field.
Through ‘Future For Nature Academy: Report’, we try to give a small glimpse of what it is like to be a conservationist. A visit of FFNAcademy member Ruben Hoekstra to several Future For Nature award winners in 2018 marked the start of this conservation journalism project. During his journey, Ruben created blogs and vlogs to show conservation in action.
The positive reactions on this initiative inspired other FFNAcademy members to continue this project by reporting on their experiences in the field. Over the coming time, we hope to expand our team of reporters, covering conservation stories from all over the world, all with the aim of inspiring as many people as possible!
