Illegal Wildlife Trade Seminar

In conjunction with the Africa Oxford Initiative and the Oxford Martin School Programme on the Illegal Wildlife Trade we are pleased to welcome you to our seminar on the Illegal Wildlife Trade in Africa.

Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from five leading conservationists who will be talking about their work to halt the illegal wildlife trade in Africa.

Each researcher will be talking about the challenges of carrying out conservation in their countries and the different solutions they are employing to help. Short presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, and the event will close with a poster session and time to meet the speakers.
