An illustrated talk by Robert Ferguson
This talk coincides with the annual selling exhibition of The Wildlife Art Society. This year part of the proceeds from the exhibition will be given to the charity Explorers against Extinction. Robert is one of their trustees and runs their Sketch For Survival campaign. He has spent his career working in travel and conservation starting as a mountain guide in the Himalayas. He has trekked across Borneo, traveled the ancient Silk Road and acted in Bollywood. He is a Fellow of the RGS and a Member of the Explorers Club in New York. He has spoken at both venues and is a published travel writer with Bradt Guides. Come and hear about this innovative charity that promotes the conservation of rare and endangered species and their environments and helps local communities impacted by their proximity to benefit from their protection. Their current focus is ’21 for 21’, a campaign championing the work of 21 conservation projects across the globe, 6 of which are in Africa where Robert has visited many times.
