Youth 4 Conservation

Below is my entry to the Youth4Conservation video contest for the 2019 South African Conservation Symposium.

The Youth4Conservation movement partners young volunteers with local conservation organisations to help tackle critical conservation issues within South Africa.

This year, the Conservation Symposium partnered with WildTrust, offering discounted registration prices to young attendees who send a short video describing how they are contributing to conservation within South Africa.

With this video, I hope to share why genetics and genomics are important to conserving biodiversity, especially with regards to an uncertain climatic future.
