Coronavirus Travel Advisory FAQs
January 31, 2020
Will WILD11 be canceled or postponed?
Our planning continues daily on what appears to be an ever-growing, superb, productive, and enjoyable WILD11. Please be assured that the health and safety of WILD11 delegates is our chief concern. While it is still too early to tell what risk the coronavirus, if any, will pose to WILD11 delegates, this determination will be made in the first two weeks of February based on the most up-to-date information provided by the World Health Organization and Indian government.
What does this mean for WILD11 goals such as building international public support for addressing the climate and extinction emergencies?
The World Wilderness Congress is an ongojng process before and after each specific Congress. Therefore, the WILD11 process continues, because it is more than an event. It is a process that builds and strengthens support for policies and programs that protect life on Earth. These WILD11-related outcomes and programmes continue regardless of travel or other restrictions, including the Indian inter-governmental climate adaptation training, the Survival Revolution (a Nature Needs Half campaign), the Global Rewilding Charter, and more.
The spread of the Wuhan coronavirus is a developing situation. We will update you with the most up-to-date information as soon as it is released. Thank you for your patience as we work to ensure the safety of our delegates.
