Event description

Description

Will Travers OBE, President and Co-Founder of the Born Free Foundation is headlining the Endangered Species Conference with a talk about wildlife conservation. This conference is being held in conjunction with ‘Where Did All the Animals Go?’ an exhibition of North East School Children’s Drawings working with Artist, Jane Lee McCracken. Jane will open the conference with an introduction about the development, in corporate partnership with Born Free, of her ‘Drawing for Endangered Species’ workshops and working with local school children to produce artwork for the exhibition.

The conference will focus on the importance of wildlife and biodiversity to humanity as well addressing positive and innovative ways to encourage individual action and the growth of collective responsibility towards wildlife welfare. Guest speakers include Simon Clinton, CEO and Founder Save Wild Tigers, Dr Melvin Gumal, Director WCS Malaysia, PC Peter Baker, Officer Northumbria Wildlife Crime Unit and a panel of school children led by exhibition initiators Artist Teacher Christine Egan-Fowler, Royal Grammar School, Newcastle and Arts Co-ordinator Linda Peacock, Jarrow Cross Primary School.

EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE AIM


Both exhibition and conference call for wider awareness and compassion for wildlife affected by human destruction, and the subsequent impact of wildlife depletion on humanity if we don’t act now. These events, which also include workshops and film screenings during the exhibition, reveal the facts as to why and how species are threatened and provide access to vital knowledge as well as concise, key actions each one of us can take, so we can make positive changes for wildlife, both locally and globally.
