Welcoming a new year also means saying goodbye to the old one, and 2019 was definitely a special year for Defenders as we celebrated the Year of Coexistence. During 2019, we showcased over three decades of Defenders’ work equipping people with innovative science-based tools and strategies to reduce conflicts as they share the landscape with wildlife. We showcased this work in monthly blog posts and videos featuring threatened and endangered species near and dear to Defenders. However, as a tribute to the amazing dedication of our staff nationwide, our partners, and the communities we work with, we have also presented our coexistence work in a new and exciting platform – story maps!
