Report on Annual NVT Lecture Evening – Tuesday 15th November 2022

“Conservation in the 21st Century; what is it and who is it for?”

Our speaker was Dr Leejiah Dorward, a conservation scientist from the University of Bangor, Wales, with a Master’s degree in conservation science and a Doctorate on improving understanding of the socio-ecological complexity of human-carnivore interactions. Conservation is changing, as we learned from our 2021 speaker, Jonathan Timberlake, but how it is changing is a much-debated topic. Leejiah is very well qualified to add to the debate with his talk: “Conservation in the 21st Century; what is it and who is it for?” The talk drew on Leejiah’s experiences in Tanzania , as well as in Northern Malawi.

Leejiah’s presentation can be viewed on the following link:
