David Attenborough gives the closing speech at the New Networks for Nature Conference 24 September 2016 Cambridge University David Attenborough Building

On Saturday I was pleased to be living in Cambridge so I could go to the New Networks for Nature event at the University in the David Attenborough Building. We discussed how we can use technology, collaborate to help wildlife locally, and internationally, and in a workshop we explored barriers to involvement and what we can do to overcome them.  The event looked at the science of wildlife decline to some extent, but also had a major focus on how writers, painters, and artists can use their skills for the benefit of wildlife. David Attenborough discussed the beginning of the conservation movement and how it has evolved to its present form, stating that with the current networks, we’re now in a better position to enact positive effects than we ever have been…. I hope he’s right and that we will all do our bit, we can think globally and act locally.
