SUNDAY 15th APRIL 2018
Spring is supposed to be here, but the weather hasn’t yet caught up, but who cares – it’s time for a walk in the countryside.
Meet at the car park of Dorridge Park, at the very end of Arden Road for a 2pm start. Distance 3.5 miles across the fields. [Be prepared for some mud.]
All are welcome.
Chadwick End resident, Dr Kate Evans, became enthralled by elephants at the age of seven, in Sri Lanka. After studying zoology at Swansea University, and gaining experience on various projects in southern Africa, she moved to Botswana’s Okavango delta to study elephant behaviour for her PhD.
Kate founded Elephants for Africa in December 2007 and that, alongside her ongoing research work in collaboration with the University of Bristol and University of Exeter, has been the focus of her work ever since.
The charity is dedicated to the conservation of elephants and the other wildlife that share their natural habitat, understanding and combating the threats to their survival and managing the conflicts between the interests of the elephants and those of local villagers.
With eighteen years of experience of field work, studying these magnificent mammals, Kate is coming to the Knowle Society to share her passion for them, to explain how ecologically essential it is to sustain them, and the challenges that they face to the survival. No doubt she will also be able to tell a tale or two of the practicalities of living in a tent in elephant country!
Come and find out more about Kate’s endeavours and the work of her charity at Knowle Village Hall at 8pm on Monday 16 April.
All are welcome.
