Event description

Description

The next annual Heron-Allen Lecture takes place in the Simpkins Lee Theatre at LMH on Friday 8th March 2019, 5.45pm to 7.00pm.

The changing nature of conservation in a humanized world

Our guest speaker Dr. David Western, known as Jonah, began research into savannas ecosystems at Amboseli in 1967, looking at the interactions of humans and wildlife. His work, unbroken since then, has served as a barometer of changes in the savannas and test of conservation solutions based on the continued coexistence of people and wildlife. Jonah is currently chairman of the African Conservation Centre, Nairobi. He directed Wildlife Conservation Society programs internationally, established Kenya’s Wildlife Planning Unit, chaired the World Conservation Union's African Elephant and Rhino Specialist Group, and was founding president of The International Ecotourism Society, chairman of the Wildlife Clubs of Kenya, director of Kenya Wildlife Service, and founder of the African Conservation Centre in Nairobi. He is an adjunct professor in Biology at the University of California, San Diego.

Drawing on his 50 years of research and conservation in the African savannas and examples from America and Europe, David Western shows how our views of nature and changing sensibilities are reshaping conservation in the age of human domination.


The event is free of charge and guests are welcome. A drinks reception will follow in the Monson Room.
