Elephants for Africa

Monday, September 24, 2012 @ 7:30 PM-9:00 PM

Conservation Conversations Series

Featured Speaker: Kate Evans, Ph.D., Executive Director and founder, Elephants for Africa http://elephantsforafrica.org

The idea for Elephants for Africa arose out of founder, Kate Evan’s Ph.D. fieldwork on elephants in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. From the outset, Kate had a vision that the research projects on which she worked could be expanded to address the wider conservation and management issues facing the African elephant, both nationally and internationally.

In 2007, the charity Elephants for Africa (EfA) was set up to support elephant conservation through research and education. Continuous behavioral and ecological research on over 1,000 known individuals and numerous other unidentified elephants has enabled Elephants for Africa to make informed decisions about elephant management and conservation. EfA’s inspiring outreach programs focus on environmental education for the children of Botswana and scholarship programs that support Botswana nationals through their post-graduate degrees.

Join us for an in-depth look at the history, current work and future of Elephants for Africa.

Location: Saint Louis Zoo Living World Auditorium. Parking is FREE in the Zoo North Lot.
