This past year was not easy for us all; the pandemic (Covid-19) caused a lot of suffering in many families, and created many obstacles and barriers in our routine but at the same time gave us some essential lessons about life and above all about appreciating continuity.

In these times of existential danger, COVID-19 taught us the importance of showing appreciation to those around us. Mental and physical health was our primary focus and as such, it made us look at things from a different perspective, completely shifting our focus from material goods to evaluating the moment, to taking things one at a time. Above all, we directed our efforts and positive energy towards things and events that make us truly happy.

Covid-19 and climate change have no correlation to one another but they both affect humanity on a global scale, much like birds that know no borders, states and continents, and in the end they all have a common denominator, asking us all to come together to fight and to find sustainable and long-term solutions.
This year, the global community showed that we really can come together and address different crises. Even our personal efforts (such as physical distancing) no matter how small they may be, when we come together they can make a big difference, thus helping one another overcome great challenges.
AOS expresses its gratitude and appreciation to all collaborators, local communities for their extraordinary efforts that, although in extremely difficult and dangerous times, demonstrated commitment, dedication, resilience, devotion in the protection of biodiversity, species, habitats and natural resources, and fought for a better and stable future.
Also, many thanks to all the public and private partners, donors, supporters, friends and fans of AOS, who trusted and stood by us while dealing with the crisis.
Stay safe and may 2021 be a good and productive year for all of you. AOS, as always, will not disappoint you, great innovations and campaigns await us for 2021.
