CapeNature hosted the annual Conservation Review of 2022 last week. The online event was presented to more than 200 registered delegates. The Review provides an opportunity for CapeNature and partners to showcase “a year in review”. The apt theme of “Resilience is in our Nature” opened the opportunity to reflect on resilience thinking. Session themes focused on responses to biodiversity crime, climate change, restoration, innovation, and the legislative framework.
While not shying away from challenges and threats to biodiversity, the Review included a strong focus on climate change, noting that climate disasters are also economic disasters. Through all this, the golden thread of the value and strength of partnerships was highlighted with many of CapeNature’s implementation partners joining the event to showcase delivery on collaborative projects.
