We take this opportunity to congratulate Paula for her continued enthusiasm which is an inspiration to both the young and the old and more-so to young upcoming Conservationist who have greater challenges ahead of them as they try to safeguard our wildlife and environment. We are indeed honored to have Paula as our chair and already she deserves another feather on her cap for the work she so far done with FoNNaP in the past few months.
