The staff of CEBioS would like to express their grieve for the passing away of a great biodiversity personality.

As many of you will now know, we are mourning the passing of our long-term friend and colleague, Taghi - Dr. Mohammed Taghi Farvar, who died on 16 July 2018. Most of those who know him are struggling even to contemplate a world without Taghi. Maybe we can best cope with this loss by continuing to regard him as being with us still; certainly his impact and presence will continue to be experienced by generations of conservation practitioners and indigenous peoples and local communities around the world.
