Kevin Hackwell says: "This report acknowledges New Zealand's work on the international target of tackling invasive alien species. New Zealand has successfully eradicated introduced mammals from over 100 offshore islands," External link

Kevin Hackwell says: "New Zealand is particularly good at using conservation efforts to save species on the brink of extinction," "However, we're not so good at reducing the direct pressures that put birds and other species at risk in the first place. We need to reverse the trends like continued wetland clearance, unstainable fisheries, and freshwater pollution in New Zealand" External link

Marta Pascual says: “If the colonizers come from a specific area, we can predict the potential distribution of the species. If they come from different environments, the dispersal potential can be very powerful. With this knowledge, measures could be taken to prevent invasive species from reaching certain areas of the world. Once they colonize an environment, it is very hard to remove them,” External link

Robert Watson says: “They’ve had some really bad examples of land degradation when they deforested the Yangtze basin. Now, as I understand it, they’ve done a fairly significant replanting of trees in the Yangtze basin because it was leading to extreme floods and dust bowls. They also, of course, have terrible air pollution in their cities. I’m somewhat optimistic that China wants to show it is an economic power and play a leadership role in the world,” “I would argue that governments around the world need to work closely with China and see if, collectively, we can move in the right direction” External link

So, you know, river turtle conservation is a tough nut to crack” External link

Kim Kim said: “Basically, I grew up in this very place. This place was owned by my parents, well my mother Rose Roques following the passing on of my father who passed on when I was quite young. Upon completing my studies, I left home and travelled the world, and eventually returned to Eswatini to work for the Eswatini National Trust Commission, and in 2004 founded All Out Africa a social eco-tourism enterprise that provides adventures that change lives for the less privileged, which has grown to cover five countries in Southern Africa. My wife is also a nature person as she grew up in Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary. After completing her studies she left home and travelled the world, and when she returned to Eswatini, she worked for Big Game Parks and then AM Consultancy. She also spent eight years running her own health and wellness business, Whole-Sum-Living, and together with Kim has developed Roki Centre in Ezulwini. ? We bought this place from my mother last year after she complained about the costliness of maintaining this place, and it’s understandable since conservation is not at all cheap, especially because at the time, Wide Horizons seemed to only attract international tourists,” External link
