“I believe that LLF presents a great opportunity for nature conservation worldwide, not only in terms of the long-term protection of biodiversity, but also the potential to positively impact the communities that are part of the legacy landscapes. I look forward to putting my energy and passion for nature conservation into the success of this project.”
