We held our 10th Anniversary celebration at the Ham Yard Hotel, London, a perfect venue to bring together many of our longstanding donors, supporters and friends. This was an opportunity to thank them for what they have helped us to achieve, raise funds for our work and set out our ambition and aims for for 2020 and beyond. It was also the ideal platform to launch our new film, Bringing Conservation to Life, which received fantastic feedback.
During the evening, author and TV presenter Lucy Cooke hosted a discussion with two of our partners Citlalli Morelos-Juarez (Tesoro Escondido Reserve, Ecuador) and Marites Gatan-Balbas (Mabuwaya Foundation, the Philippines), who spoke about the work they are doing to conserve nature and improve lives in two of the most biodiverse places on Earth. We also heard from Jonathan Baillie (National Geographic), who has been a friend and advisor to Synchronicity Earth founders, Adam and Jessica Sweidan, since 2009, when the organisation was launched.
