Greetings from Conservation Volunteers Australia’s Understand & Protect the Western Pygmy Possum Team – WOW what a year it’s been so far, first the bushfires that ravaged through some of Australia’s beautiful landscapes and then COVID-19 that has affected the world in so many ways.
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to suspend our regular in-person volunteering activities across the country for the foreseeable future.
“Our top priority is the well-being of our volunteers, staff, and the wider communities in which we live and operate. We’re implementing this change to enable social distancing, based on the latest advice from health authorities around the country.” – Phil Harrison, CEO, Conservation Volunteers Australia.
As we all know too well, two months is a long time during a pandemic, and whilst the potential for a second wave of infections is possible, we remain hopeful that we will soon be able to turn our attention to the land once more and resume the crucial work for the “Understand & Protect the Western Pygmy Possum” Project.
Most importantly the continued financial commitment from our donors through GlobalGiving continues to be essential in allowing us to move forward with the “Understand & Protect the Western Pygmy Possum” Project.
THANK YOU, we appreciate and value your help so much and we look forward to your ongoing support into the future.
Until next time,
Conservation Volunteers Australia
