Wikipedia is the 10th-most-visited website on earth, but when it comes to Africa, there is a scarcity of information for an entire continent of one billion people. As Wikipedia marks its 20th anniversary in 2021, an initiative launched by the Moleskine Foundation is helping young Africans create, expand, and enhance Wikipedia content about Africa, including the translation of more than 200 pieces of COVID-19 information on topics like vaccination and social distancing into more than 17 African languages.

PKPR has secured coverage of the project in Reuters, Global Citizen, Inside Philanthropy, The Daily Mail, Good News Network, and Global Times.

While wolves have previously been shown to affect pumas’ prey selection and habitat use.
