"Conservation of Southern Africa's elephants" -Fundraising Lecture


When:   Wednesday 15 February 2006
   English Heritage Lecture Theatre, Savile Row, London W1

The challenge of managing the increasing elephant populations across Africa is a complex one.  We are delighted that Professor Rudi van Aarde, who is currently carrying out the largest study of elephants so far carried out in Africa, has agreed to speak on the various options that are available to conservationists.  This will include an assessment of "metapopulation dynamics", where a system of megaparks are established which will encourage almost a quarter of a million elephants to disperse naturally across existing land designated as conservation areas, without fences or borders.  If successful, it is hoped that this solution will greatly reduce local population pressures, including the impact on vegetation and on people.

For more details and to buy tickets, please contact FOC's London office.  All proceeds will support FOC's work.
