Welcome to the December issue of NiC.
As the year is drawing to a close, one often feels the need to look back at the past twelve months and ponder on events, achievements and perhaps unfulfilled goals. In the past year NiC has once again changed skin with a look mirroring the new IIC brand which I hope by now readers will have become familiar with. What is unchanged, however, is the original aim of bringing conservation news to a wider international audience and facilitate the sharing of information among professionals in a free and open access format. Have we achieved this? It seems we did, as many of you responded very positively to a survey that was circulated ahead of the IIC new brand launch, expressing their approval for this publication. Thank you! For your appreciation and even more importantly for your support. I would like to use this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the authors that have given their time to write for NiC and to all the readers that have commented, followed and shared NiC’s work online. I do however have a resolution for the next year – I would like to see more and more authors from under-represented countries featured within this publication so that their work and their stories can be shared and enjoyed widely by our community.
Without further ado, I leave you to NiC wishing you all the best for the festive season and the new year!
