It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you to the Osprey Leadership Foundation’s Evolving Conservation Leaders Programme! We hope to create a thriving community of like-minded young conservation leaders in the UK and West Africa who are building a better world locally, nationally and internationally. By 2030 OLF will be inspiring and enabling thousands of young leaders.  Dr Tim Mackrill
