Fabulous forests

The people who live closest to forests are the ones that need to be able to benefit from them, if we are to be successful in conserving them. That was the message from James Gordon, of IUCN’s Forest Conservation Programme, who told Wild Talk about the work IUCN is doing through its Livelihoods and Landscapes Strategy. Moving from Latin America, to Africa, then Asia, he explained the kind of experiences and lessons IUCN has learnt from each continent.
