Distinguished Visitor Lectures
The Appliance of Science: Thorny Issues in Rhino Conservation

The current rhino poaching crisis has affected long-term conservation programmes in varied and unexpected ways, suffering at the expense of emergency fire-fighting responses. Biological management is affected by security concerns, leading to technology developers becoming involved in finding measures to limit the devastating impact that poaching causes.

How can field programme managers, and the conservation organisations that support their efforts, draw on the best scientific advice available to inform their decisions? What merits further research and what should be dismissed? Where are the gaps in research? And how can an NGO like Save the Rhino best articulate such issues for rhino conservation to stakeholders, donors, journalists and members of the public? Explore these issues, and more, with this exclusive lecture. Cathy has been CEO of Save the Rhino International since 2001, with particular interest in liaising closely with field programmes to determine priority needs in both long-term and one-off projects. This lecture is free and open to all to attend. What will you learn?
