In this introductory podcast, we showcase some of the big motions and decisions that took place at the IUCN WCC 2016, in addition to the many voices that were present at the congress. With more than 10,000 participants from 192 countries, we could not record them all, but we still obtained a mix voices loud and clear representing 5 continents!
Each participant we interviewed was asked 5 short questions: what is your favorite place on planet Earth? What is your favorite species/organism? Who is your favorite conservationist? What is the most urgent place/species to conserve/preserve? What was the best part of the IUCN World Conservation Congress? Along with responses from our delegates, Andrew MacIntosh and Cecile Sarabian try to answer these questions as well. Can you?
In the upcoming podcasts featuring conservationists that attended the conference, you will be able to hear from Sylvia Earle, Andrew Venter, Jo Ruxton & David Jones, as well as Abnous Sadeghi & Amir-Hossein Khaleghi, so stay tuned!
