Another jam-packed year is almost behind us. It was a year in which we hosted a successful Earth Hour campaign to raise awareness of the threats of climate change, took a Journey of Water with a group of young and influential South Africans to shine a light on our water challenges and launched the WWF-SASSI #SASSIstories campaign, a consumer awareness initiative aimed at telling and keeping alive the stories inspired by our oceans.

In this edition of the Panda Bulletin, we continue to look ahead and to find innovative solutions to the environmental challenges that await us in the New Year and beyond. We are hopeful of a positive outcome at the COP21 climate change negotiations in Paris, and know that, whatever the outcome, we will have an important role to play alongside like-minded organisations to keep world leaders honest. Closer to home, South Africa’s droughts and related water shortages have affected rural and urban communities alike. This is a harsh reminder of the country’s water-scarcity and the importance of collective efforts aimed at securing our water resources.

Also in this issue, we are asking you to consider the legacy you wish to leave behind for the environment. By remembering WWF in your will, you can leave a legacy that will have a lasting impact on our planet for generations to come. Find out more about this opportunity on page 15 and be inspired by the wishes of your peers who also want to leave a legacy for nature.
