The Endangered Wildlife Trust is hosting wild chats with various conservation specialists to help educate the public and provide meaningful entertainment.
South Africa (22 June 2020) – At the start of the lockdown in South Africa, the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) launched an online series of talks surrounding all wildlife subjects. The Trust brought in experts to discuss and educate people on a variety of topics. The Endangered Wildlife Trust is hosts the Wild Chats to provide meaningful entertainment to anyone wanting to learn more about conservation.
“We’ll be bringing you two more wonderful Wild Chats, which will be approximately 20-30 minutes long, with time afterwards for questions and answers. These chats will start promptly at 15:00 (GMT+2), so please be sure to join a little ahead of time.
You can register for the chats of your choice, using the links below. Each Wild Chat is also recorded and shared on our YouTube channel and other social media platforms afterwards, meaning no one has to miss out!
So stay home, stay safe, and stay connected with our wild world.
While our Wild Chats are free of charge, we rely on donations to make this critical conservation work possible. If you would like to help us make a difference, please click here“
This week the chats will be about Sungazers and Conservation Tourism. The Sungazer Lizard talk will take place this coming Tuesday (23 June 2020).
Bradley Gibbons, an Endangered Wildlife Trust Field Officer, will give an introduction to Sungazer lizards “what they are, where they live, what threats they are faced with, and a bit about their interesting lives.” This talk is suitable for all ages. You can register for the talk here.
Graeme Edmond, the CEO of aha Hotels & Lodges, and Constant Hoogstad, EWT Senior Manager is doing a Wild Chat about the relationship between conservation and tourism. Graeme and Constant will address the question of why conservation is important for tourism, and vice versa, as well as looking at how we marry the two, and who will ultimately benefit.
