The Wild Chats for August line up perfectly for Women’s Month, focussing on the power of the lioness within the pride’s of South Africa.
South Africa (03 August 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.
In honour of women, especially the lionesses of South Africa, the EWT Wild Chat for August look at the powerhouses of the wild, “The Carnivor Queens”.
If like us, the lion is one of your favourite wild animals, this will be the chat for you!
Join us on 5 August at 7 pm for a fascinating panel discussion on the state of our carnivores, and the formidable women dedicated to their conservation. Dr Harriet Davies-Mostert, Head of Conservation for the EWT and a carnivore specialist, will facilitate the panel discussion. Dr Mbizah is the Founder and Executive Director of Wildlife Conservation Action. She is committed to building the capacity of local communities in Zimbabwe, to protect and coexist with wildlife, while improving their livelihoods. Dr Dickman is a conservation biologist focused on the maintenance of threatened wildlife populations on human-dominated land, and how to resolve human-wildlife conflict. Her work focuses mainly on understanding the drivers of conflict between humans and large carnivores, and how those issues can best be addressed. Samantha Nicholson is the coordinator of the EWT’s African Lion Database Initiative – a project that aims to consolidate lion population and distribution across the continent.
