So, with the new year approaching, most of us are happy to see 2020 drop behind the hill never to be seen again. I’m sure plenty of us are already planning new goals, for work, exercise and maybe even a cheeky holiday. This week, I will share with you what I have planned for Conservation Captured in the new year.
A new year, a new dawn
There is a lot of ground to cover in this area, and I already have 24 ideas for new content. This includes:
· Illegal logging
· local communities and their roles within the illegal wildlife trade
· Law enforcement
· Raptor persecution
· Badgers and bovine TB
· Lion, Leopard and wolf human/wildlife conflict
The list goes on and is growing.
I see many hours of typing ahead of me
A YouTube channel
This is new territory for me, but I’m looking forward to getting in front of the camera and expressing myself in a way that is different from putting words on paper. I will still be covering illegal wildlife trade and human/wildlife conflict with some humour, some facts, some interviews and perhaps debating. I’m hoping to make it as exciting and engaging as possible.
Looking forward to throwing my hat into the video arena
A novel Idea
I’ve been brooding on writing a book for a while now. It will be a series of books, bringing to life the struggles of anti-poaching efforts on the ground, the traffickers and law enforcement in the middle and of course, the political battle of governments.
A new best seller perhaps
I’m sure by now, most of you know that I am on the majority of social media platforms. I will be continuing to create more engaging content as well as adding live sessions and maybe some debates with other professionals and the public on Facebook and Instagram. I’m planning on doing stories of myself on Instagram, as well as looking at sustainability and nature in everyday life.
Along with YouTube I will also be expanding my footprint on other social media platforms
I’ve been slacking on this front all year, unfortunately. All the business of emigrating to the UK, lockdown and then once arriving in the UK, and getting organized has left my camera looking rather sad and dusty. So along with all the other goals I have for next year, I am planning to gear up, get out and take plenty of photographs of what Britain has to offer.

On that note, all that’s left for me to say is Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah. I hope you all have a wonderful socially distanced Xmas and a happy new year. I will see you in the New Year rearing to go. Until then, TTFN. (Ta Ta For Now)
