Tusk Tust - Conservation Lecture London 15th November

Tusk Trust announces that Ian Craig and Steve Trent will speak at the 18th annual Tusk American Express Conservation Lecture, to be hosted by BBC presenter Kate Silverton.

The two leading conservationists will explore how the illegal trade in elephant ivory and rhino horn is fuelling poaching across Africa as well as how we can stop the killing and stem the demand.

Ian Craig, one of the Founders of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, the Northern Rangelands Trust and a member of the Board of Kenya Wildlife Service, will cover the impact of poaching on the ground in Africa and the struggles faced by game rangers and park managers in the face of escalating demand.

Steve Trent, Chairman of WildAid UK and formerly Executive Director of the Environmental Investigation Agency, is one of the world’s leading experts in the illegal trade of wildlife products and parts. With his extensive knowledge of Chinese culture, he will discuss the challenges faced in the battle to curb demand from the Far East.
