Your Speakers for THE 2020 Spring Talk - Creating a Rhino Stronghold

Dr Will Fowlds has seen first-hand the bloody aftermath left by poachers and has saved many rhinos, including Thandi, from certain death. He set up ARCC (African Rhino Conservation Collaboration) whose aims, to co-ordinate effective action against the poaching scourge, clearly match his own determination and dedication.

Siseko is from the humblest of backgrounds but he aimed high! His two passions for wildlife and aviation were realised when he qualified as a commercial fixed-wing pilot and became the 'eyes in sky' for ARCC and the wildlife he so loves. His story is remarkable and truly inspirational.

Foundation

Lindy Bruce founded The Kariega Foundation out of a desire to contribute to the sustainable conservation of wildlife and the upliftment of local communities. Kariega Game Reserve is surrounded by impoverished African communities but Lindy and the Reserve are changing all that. Lindy's commitment is a positive example of what can be achieved.
