Obviously a wondrously effective organisation. Small, but exquisite in every detail”
Bill Oddie, OBE – Birdwatcher, natural history presenter and High Five Club Patron
Ian Redmond talks about the challenges facing wildlife and local communities in Africa today and some of the choices open to conservationists. He also explains why he is supporting and attending the performance of SNARED at Canterbury’s Gulbenkian Theatre.
Join us with special guest Manny Mvula, Co-Founder of High Five Club, UK & Zambia whose mission is to give communities in the developing world a hand up rather than a hand out, in raising their living standards and future livelihood prospects by funding small-scale community projects that address: Poverty alleviation, Education, Empowerment, Sanitation, Healthcare, Alternative energy, Biodiversity, Agriculture, Food distribution.
We’ll be discussing conservation and the SNARED production, a charismatic and tense drama that is seen to take place in the African bush: A hunter is confronted by an angry conservationist armed with a gun. As the poacher pleads for his life, we unravel the complex issues around wildlife conservation in this beautiful but dangerous land, addressing one of Our Wild World’s greatest conservation threats: poaching and snaring of Africa’s wildlife.
