American Express Conservation Lecture 2013
The challenges facing wildlife and communities in Zimbabwe
An inspiring and informative lecture was given by Clive Stockil, winner of the inaugural Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa, at the annual AMEX Tusk Conservation Lecture. Attended by over 480 people, Clive shared details of his life's work and the way forward for the people and wildlife of Zimbabwe in the midst of the current poaching crisis.
Deeply committed to the conservation of endangered wildlife, as well as a tireless champion of some of Africa’s poorest and most disenfranchised people, Clive has, for forty years, been successfully empowering and educating rural communities to manage and benefit from conservation and wildlife tourism.
The challenge of integrating human and wildlife populations towards a common conservation goal remains Stockil’s passion, one he undertakes against all odds and in a country that has seen more than its fair share of political and economic strife.
Many thanks to American Express for their support of Tusk and this event over the years, as well as to Painted Dog Wines for their generous contribution.
