COVID-19 brought many challenges to wildlife professionals, but it also brought new opportunities. Virtual outreach is one of those new opportunities. By leveraging available technology, outreach professionals were able to continue communicating their messages to existing and new audiences. This panel discussion will bring outreach professionals from a variety of backgrounds to discuss their successes and their lessons learned with outreach during a global pandemic. The virtual platform of the 2021 conference will only highlight the need for wildlife professionals to exchange the tips, tricks, pitfalls, and successes they have learned through a challenging 2020. For more information about the panel and to ask questions ahead of the discussion, visit the CEOWG website at https://wildlife.org/ceowg/.
