Watch Dr Amy Dickman's talk at the Tusk Conservation Lecture here!

Watch Dr Amy Dickman's talk, "Money, Myths & Man-Eaters: Big Cat Conservation in Tanzania and Beyond" with a Q&A hosted by Kate Silverton.

Join Amy as she discusses her development of the Ruaha Carnivore Project at the Tusk American Express conservation lecture at the Royal Geographical Society, London. You will learn how RCP works with local communities and authorities to mitigate the extremely intense human-carnivore conflict in the Ruaha region.

With techniques such as camera trapping and working with locals and park authorities to document sightings of carnivores, the project provides support to lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah and spotted hyena. Local pastoralists have been provided with ‘boma proofing’ and Anatolian Shepherd guard dogs to protect their herds. Education, healthcare and vetinary support also feature on RCP’s agenda.

We hope you enjoy this fascinating lecture!
