Highly acclaimed elephant conservationist and wildlife TV presenter of This Wild Life and Big Cat Diaries, Saba Douglas-Hamilton heads to the forum Barrow on Monday 15 April.
Saba will captivate audiences with stories of her life and work in Kenya, where she lives with her husband and three children, growing up among elephants and later working with some of the most endangered wildlife on the planet. Whilst sharing remarkable tales from her childhood in the Great Rift Valley, highlights from her decade as a BBC wildlife presenter, and the adventure of raising her own children in the wild, her underlying message emphasizes the role each of us can play in protecting the natural world.
Drawing on the pioneering work of Save the Elephants (the charity that she helped her father establish in 1997), and her own efforts to create a grassroots coalition for the environment, Saba takes the audience on a compelling journey through the challenges of ivory poaching and shrinking wildlife habitats to the inspiring solutions offered by high-tech tracking technologies, innovative collaborations and a passionate group of traditional Kenyan women who are helping to defend migration corridors for elephants and other wildlife in a fast changing world.
