Sir Edmund Hillary - statement from Parks Forum
Sir Edmund Hillary - statement from Parks Forum,
Australia New Zealand
11 January 2008
It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of our patron, Sir Edmund Hillary.
As the patron of Parks Forum, Sir Edmund lent his outstanding reputation and his powerful voice to our mission as an organisation. His willingness to join us in the establishment of Parks Forum reminded us of the importance of not only what we do, but also the way we do it – with the character and integrity that was a hallmark of all his endeavours.
Sir Edmund’s legacy will live on in many ways, including through our own organisation as we move forward with our own work.
Our condolences go to his
family and friends.
We acknowledge a great life, well lived.
Neil McCarthy Chairman
David Clarke Chief Executive Officer
