WILD CHATS FOR AUGUST
This month, we’ll be bringing you two more wonderful Wild Chats, which will be approximately 20-30 minutes long, with time afterwards for questions and answers. These chats will start promptly, so please be sure to join a little ahead of time.
You can register for the chats of your choice, using the links below. Each Wild Chat is also recorded and shared on our YouTube channel and other social media platforms afterwards, meaning no one has to miss out!
So stay home, stay safe, and stay connected with our wild world.
While our Wild Chats are free of charge, we rely on donations to make this critical conservation work possible. If you would like to help us make a difference, please click here
Join us on 5 August at 7 pm for a fascinating panel discussion on the state of our carnivores, and the formidable women dedicated to their conservation. Dr Harriet Davies-Mostert, Head of Conservation for the EWT and a carnivore specialist, will facilitate the panel discussion. Dr Mbizah is the Founder and Executive Director of Wildlife Conservation Action. She is committed to building the capacity of local communities in Zimbabwe, to protect and coexist with wildlife, while improving their livelihoods. Dr Dickman is a conservation biologist focused on the maintenance of threatened wildlife populations on human-dominated land, and how to resolve human-wildlife conflict. Her work focuses mainly on understanding the drivers of conflict between humans and large carnivores, and how those issues can best be addressed. Samantha Nicholson is the coordinator of the EWT’s African Lion Database Initiative – a project that aims to consolidate lion population and distribution across the continent. This talk is suitable for teens and adults
