Pathways Africa 2020

November 11, 2019

WildCRU members, Amy Dickman and Alayne Cotterill, are two of six founding members of The Pride Lion Conservation Alliance – an alliance of carnivore conservation organisation leaders developed to demonstrate an innovative, non-competitive conservation model. Based on the success of this model for improving the impact and resilience of their own work, Pride are hosting a conference to showcase this way of working to a wider audience. The theme for the conference is “Open the Door to Diverse Voices” and it promises to be a great event for anyone who is interested in supporting and promoting diverse voices in African wildlife conservation and practice.

“As Pride, we believe that we need to do conservation differently and we hope that this International Conference, held on African soil, will provide an opportunity for African researchers and conservation practitioners to come together to learn, share, and listen.”

Pathways Africa 2020 will be held 16th– 19th February 2020 at Brackenhurst Conference Center in Limuru, Kenya.

Pride have worked diligently to make the Pathways Africa Conference as inclusive as possible at every level, and have intentionally designed the conference program to provide innovative, relevant programming and training to strengthen the next generation of conservation leadership and catalyze our existing leaders to achieve greater impacts for African conservation. The program will include many opportunities for attendees to network and participate in interactive discussions around leadership, diversity, community, and other challenges faced by conservation leaders today.

Registration for the conference is open now via the Pathways registration site, and we encourage people to register before 30th November for the reduced early-bird rate.

As WildCRU, we are proud to support the Pride initiative, and would like to invite others to add their voices to those heard at this conference.
