The Rhino story
Felix Patton has been in the conservation sector for nearly 20 years and is currently a technical advisor the Rhino Fund Uganda. Rhino conservation has been the focus of his career in conservation, focusing on training rangers and the management of game reserves. On the 7th May, he is visiting Wageningen University and has kindly agreed to host a presentation about his work and the status of Rhino conservation.
During the evening he will focus on the current populations and threats to rhinos, the history of Rhino poaching, how it has changed over time and the actions currently in place to prevent it. Furthermore, he will focus on how Uganda responded after rhinos become extinct in 1983 and how unique research in Ziwa Rhino sanctuary is guiding management.
Doors open at 6.30pm, with the presentation starting at 7pm. There will also be time for questions at the end! If you want to gain insight into the status of rhino conservation and how research can inform management of endangered species then please join us for what is sure to be an extremely interesting evening!
