BBC Wildlife reports on WildCRU’s Cecil Summit
Followers of the WildCRU already know that we invested great effort in the Cecil Summit this September. The goal was to ask whether, stimulated by the global attention stimulated by the Cecil episode, there was an opportunity to break the mould of lion conservation with radical thinking brought to us by experts from the fields of economics, development, politics and law. The final session of this three-day brainstorming meeting was held in public, and amongst the audience was renowned BBC Wildlife journalist, James Fair. James has now published a fascinating summary of the session and BBC Wildlife have given us permission to reproduce it here.
