Featured Speaker: Damien Mander, founder, Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF). Damien is a former navy diver, special operations sniper, and Iraq War veteran.
The International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF) was founded in 2009 with a mission to develop, implement, and resource front-line, boots-on-the-ground anti-poaching solutions to protect rhino and elephant from illegal poaching. By protecting rhino, in particular, IAPF plays a critical role in buying time for this at-risk species as well as safeguarding the overall landscapes in which IAPF operates, for us, for future generations, and for the animals with whom we share the planet. IAPF works alongside partners who specialize in community engagement and development, research and development, wildlife rescue and biodiversity management.
Damien discusses the front-line role of anti-poaching rangers in southern Africa and what is required today in order to hold onto the natural world for tomorrow. We can all be agents for change in a generation that is challenging the natural world.
