A leading elephant conservationist will be bringing her tour to Skye.
Saba Douglas-Hamilton will be appearing at the Aros Centre on Saturday 20 April 2019 to present her show, A Life With Elephants.
Saba will reveal stories of her life and work in Kenya, where she lives with her husband and three children, as well as sharing her experiences of growing up among elephants and later working with some of the most endangered wildlife on the planet.
Whilst sharing remarkable tales from her childhood in the Great Rift Valley, highlights from her decade as a BBC wildlife presenter, and the adventure of raising her own children in the wild, her underlying message emphasizes the role each of us can play in protecting the natural world.
Drawing on the pioneering work of Save the Elephants (the charity that she helped her father establish in 1997), and her own efforts to create a grassroots coalition for the environment, Saba takes the audience on a compelling journey through the challenges of ivory poaching and shrinking wildlife habitats to the inspiring solutions offered by high-tech tracking technologies, innovative collaborations and a passionate group of traditional Kenyan women who are helping to defend migration corridors for elephants and other wildlife in a fast changing world.
