26,000 species are now threatened with extinction, and few are more iconic than the rhino. In this gripping presentation from the frontlines of South African rhino conservation, Amanda Smith will share her personal stories and explore factors underpinning the international trade in rhino horn. Strategies for mitigating its devastating impacts will be proposed. Amanda is living proof that ‘you don’t have to be wealthy or a conservation scientist to make a difference - you just have to have faith in your power to change things!’ Amanda will also provide key advice for anyone interested in volunteering in Africa.
