The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is mourning the death of Dr Luc Hoffmann who passed away last week at the age of 93.
In mourning the co-founder of the global organisation, they are also celebrating his extraordinary life-long contribution to nature conservation.
In Fiji, Dr. Luc’s work on establishing the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands was recognized in 2006 with the Upper Navua Conservation Area designated a Ramsar site.
An ardent ornithologist from early childhood, Dr Luc Hoffmann obtained a PhD in Zoology and authored more than 60 books and publications on birds and their habitats.
