The Last Giants: Lecture by Levison Wood

Renowned British explorer, writer, photographer and Tusk Ambassador Levison Wood recounts a collection of stories and anecdotes from his travels across Africa, mixing tales from his previous adventurous treks with a personal insight into the issues of conservation facing us all today. The event is sponsored by Forevermark, and is being held as part of the Living with Wildlife appeal, in partnership with Send a Cow.

Levison Wood - Walking With Giants

In his new talk ‘The Last Giants’, Levison Wood also reviews his recent trek, a unique experience where he was embedded with a migrating herd of elephants crossing the spectacular Botswana landscape.

As part of this trek, Levison has explored the rapid decline of one of the world’s favourite animals. Thirty years ago Africa was home to a million elephants, today the figure stands at only half that. Meanwhile in just 40 years, the human population has more than doubled. This is a critical time for the African elephant and his aim is to inspire you to act now, to learn more and to help save this flagship species from permanent extinction.

Don’t miss this chance to catch this fascinating talk!

The event is being held as part of the Living with Wildlife appeal, run in partnership between Tusk and Send a Cow to raise funds to lift people out of poverty and protect the wildlife of Uganda’s Murchison Falls National Park. Levison Wood visited Murchison Falls National Park in 2014 while Walking the Nile, witnessing firsthand the challenges facing the wildlife and people in the area.

The UK government will match all funds raised on the night of the event – making your support go twice as far. The money raised will help vulnerable people and wildlife living in Uganda as well as supporting other similar work across Africa.
