African Symposium’s 2020
Wildlife Conservation in Africa:
I was honoured to be invited to speak at the "African Symposium’s Wildlife Conservation in Africa: The New Way Forward" held on March 3rd at The Rubin Museum of Art.
I experienced a magical gathering of experts, diplomats, activists and compassionate citizens, who together on and off the stage discussed wildlife conservation in Africa. We shared a diversity of ideas and explored ways to increase awareness and develop a compassionate culture to feed much needed legislative reform and social progress to protect wildlife and the environment.
