Communication put to the test in developing relationship with new client
Last week Bea, Gareth and Marie popped up to the London Wetland Centre to meet Silvia Balladares from the Maldonado Municipality of Uruguay, South America. We’d been contacted by the Wetland Warrior Trust, a group of conservationists working for the protection of the wetlands and estuary of La Barra. Check out their Facebook page here. It looks like we’ll be able to work with them to provide advice on habitat management planning and visitor engagement to maximise the benefits of the wetlands for wildlife and people.
Silvia doesn’t speak English and Marie and Gareth don’t speak Spanish so it could have been a very short discussion but for the fortune that Bea, one of our ecologists, is Spanish so had no trouble ensuring that we all understood each other.
