A Tribute to Tony Wood, Former President and Vice-President of BirdLife Zimbabwe

It is with heavy hearts that we honour and say good-bye to Tony Wood, former BirdLife Zimbabwe President and Vice-President. Tony suffered a stroke at home late on Saturday afternoon 11th September and passed away on Sunday 12th September 2021.

We will all have our own memories of Tony. He was widely known, has been involved with BirdLife Zimbabwe for many years and had many birding friends within the BirdLife Partnership. We will always be thankful to Tony. Tony was President and Vice President of BirdLife Zimbabwe from 2012 to 2018. In the tough times post 2012 when BirdLife Zimbabwe was struggling, Tony supported and participated in all our fundraising efforts and was a pillar of strength as we slowly got back to our feet. Tony was there when we needed him most for which we will always be grateful.
