We were delighted to receive so many entries for our Keck Awards this year, which highlight projects demonstrating excellent public outreach around conservation. They represent a very wide range of approaches from every part of the world, and demonstrate how creative public engagement has grown in the past two years, despite - and sometimes because - of the obstacles of the pandemic.
We have now chosen ten projects for the shortlist. We will be publishing more details about these shortly in News in Conservation's August issue. There will also be an opportunity to vote on your favourite project in the public vote, which opens on 22nd August. Watch this space for more details!
