Flic's legacy

AMCS has launched the Felicity Wishart Legacy Fund, to honour our beloved friend and colleague. The fund will provide scholarships for female environmental activists. The scholarships will pay for leadership training and mentoring, focusing on activists from smaller organisations because empowering grassroots organisations was so important to Flic. Flic devoted her life to protecting our blue planet. Please help us continue her legacy by  making a contribution.
