Iain Douglas-Hamilton to Talk in London


Save The Elephants

Date Published

Iain Douglas-Hamilton, Founder and CEO of Save the Elephants, will be in London on Wednesday 28 May to give a fascinating insight into the ivory poaching crisis and the grounds for his optimism about the future. The joint Tusk / STE event will be held at Christie’s auction house in Chelsea, with the proceeds funding an anti-poaching project in Kenya.

With almost five decades of experience in Africa studying and working to save elephants, the depth of Iain’s perspective on the on-going elephant poaching crisis is second to none. His tales from the front line of the battle for elephants, combined with his insights into the behaviour and social lives of these most intelligent of animals, puts the plight of elephants into the widest possible perspective.

There is little sign that the elephant crisis is easing, but political momentum for change is growing. A global coalition has come together to turn the situation around through anti-poaching, anti-trafficking and reducing demand for ivory; in this there is real hope.

In the spirit of this collaboration, the evening is being held in support of a joint project between Save the Elephants and Tusk, to help secure a future for the elephants of northern Kenya through high-tech tracking technology.

The event will be held at Christie’s, 8 King Street, London SW1Y 6QT on Wednesday 28 May 2014. There will be a drinks and canapés reception on arrival, followed by Iain’s talk at 7pm. Tickets cost £75.00 per person, with 100% of the proceeds reaching the project on the ground.
