Special Speaker Sessions
In Life on the Conservation Front Line Niall describes his adventures working in endangered species research in remote and challenging environments across the world, and how he has been able to bridge the gap between science and policy and have a direct impact on international conservation. With stories about capturing man-eating crocodiles in Uganda, and 18ft long anacondas in Guyana, to working with gun-wielding cowboys in wild-west Honduras, and exploring never-before-seen parts of the Amazon, Life on the Conservation Front Line is a rip-roaring tale of adventure; but it is also a homage to the importance of conservation, and a testament to how much a young scientist can achieve in terms of influencing government policy on the sustainability of our planet.
March 10, 2015 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM with reception to follow. The event will be held at the University of Washington Seattle campus in Kane Hall 130. Event and reception are FREE and open to the public.
