Listening to Dr Winnie Kiiru you cannot help but be inspired by the real nature of the discussion.
Winnie is a passionate African woman who wants the people to be at the very core of the solution. Her spirit animal is the elephant and she has studied elephant behaviour for decades. She recounts her journey which she fell into as a researcher with the Kenyan Wildlife Service, to being offered an opportunity.
She assesses the complexities of the issues on the ground in areas such as the Amboseli National Park which is where she does a lot of her work now, saying that if we do not act now places like Amboseli will be lost forever.
We need to re-strategise and think outside the box in order for Conservation to survive, and she is one lady that has and will continue to dedicate her life to the efforts of this cause.
It is a truly inspiring listen.
Inspiring positivity together.
...Together we make Tofauti.
