The CIC was deeply sadenned to learn of the passing of Dr. Bradnee Chambers on January 23. He leaves behind him a huge void, both as a professional and as an individual. His enduring achievements since assuming the role of Executive Secretary of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) in 2013 are a reflection of his impressive career, one cut-short far too soon.
His sudden departure is a great loss for CMS and for wildlife conservation as a whole. We have lost a leader, a teacher, and man who gave his life to improving the wildlife conservation across borders, cultures and generations. The CIC would like to offer its’ sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Bradnee at this difficult time. We will forever remember him as incredible individual who devoted his life to making the world a better place for wildlife.
