Tackling the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic requires all of us, individually and collectively, to adhere to the measures that authorities have put in place to contain the virus so as not to put additional stress on our public health system.
Following the guidelines from the UK government issued on Monday 16 March, we at David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation have implemented a series of measures to protect our staff and contribute to the wider protection of our community.
We have asked the majority of our staff to work from home as of Tuesday morning. Our office is being managed with a skeleton team until further notice so please do bear with us as we ask for your patience in these difficult times which could cause delays in daily operations. We are also looking to adjust our level, frequency, and style of communication with our followers in light of recent pressures.
We will continue to be guided by the UK government on the duration and the level of restrictions and will implement all further recommendations from authorities. Rest assured we will continue our vital work to fight wildlife crime and support the needs of our conservation partners in Africa and Asia. Never before has our policy work been so important in tackling the illegal wildlife trade so we can prevent something like this from occurring again.
The DSWF team wants to wish our greater family and dedicated supporters strength during these challenging times ahead.
Please continue to contact DSWF team members where you have their email addresses already or email firstname.lastname@example.org and your enquiry will be forwarded to the appropriate person accordingly.
