Stray Notes
Gracias para el streaming. Sigo viendo de la tierra lejana (Las Vegas, Nevada) y me encanta la calidad de temas. Que bueno ver y escuchar Alvaro Umaña hoy. Glenn Jampol preguntó cómo podemos abrir la conversación a un público más amplio. Mainstreaming la conservación y las prácticas sostenibles es imposible sin livestreaming. Gracias de nuevo por compartir este evento con el mundo … Thanks for streaming. I keep seeing from the far land (Las Vegas, Nevada) and I love the quality of themes. It’s good to see and hear Alvaro Umaña today. Glenn Jampol asked how we can open the conversation to a wider public. Mainstreaming conservation and sustainable practices is impossible without livestreaming. Thank you again for sharing this event with the world.
