I believe that one of its most important contributions is the forum they provide for people — laypersons to professionals from a diversity of backgrounds — to freely exchange ideas. Hopefully, this inclusive kind of forum will pave the way for new leaders to carry on Voices for Biodiversity's efforts to enhance our relationships to other species and nature."
