Tusk Conservation Lecture 2011
The 17th annual lecture at the Royal Geographic Society was a huge success, boasting a joint collaboration on their “use of technology in conservation” by Dr Iain Douglas- Hamilton, the Elephant specialist and Dr John “Tico” McNutt from the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust. Both spoke evocatively about how their scientific work with elephants and African wild dog benefitted from technological advances. Dr McNutt currently pioneers work to create a synthetic bio boundary to prevent human-predator conflict in Botswana.
The drinks reception which followed was a great opportunity to meet the speakers and this year, Christmas presents could be bought from various stalls, including Northern Rangeland Trust Trading, an enterprise for women in northern Kenya.
