Christmas is only around the corner and I can only imagine the flurry of activity in Europe and other countries.
This time of year brings out many mixed feelings for many of us. For some they are sad as another year goes by. For others they are happy and looking forward to a New Year, a fresh start!
For us in WAG we are very excited about 2012. We have so much work to do, many exciting projects to start, so many volunteers coming to visit. Next year, we hope to extend our fence a further 12 kms to assist with the human-elephant conflict. We also hope to do a lot more work in the local communities to improve their livelihoods which in turn will we hope reduce them coming in to hunt inside the reserves. And of course have more scouts trained.
But for now December in Malawi brings not only the festive season but also alot more work with the poaching season at its peak. We are on high alert and out all day and night trying to protect our wildlife.
In this newsletter we talk about the scouts, their work, our achievements over the last year and the challenges we face.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year.
Best regards, Lynn Clifford
