In 'Protecting Africa’s Elephants and Rhinos', IFAW UK Director, Philip Mansbridge, will talk about IFAW’s vital work protecting wildlife and habitats globally. The lecture will focus on how IFAW is using new technology and techniques to get ‘left of kill’ - stopping poaching before it happens. Using videos, slides and live demonstrations, Philip Mansbridge and David Cowdrey (IFAW Head of Policy and Campaigns), will show how a coordinated, community-level approach that engages all stakeholders can help save iconic wildlife species such as elephants and rhinos. The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is a global wildlife and conservation organisation.
