Meet the Scientist: Richard Vigne

  • Thursday, February 18, 2016
  • 11:00am - 11:45am

Join us for a special edition of Meet the Scientist with world-renowned conservationist Richard Vigne, the CEO of Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

Once a working cattle ranch in colonial Kenya, today Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in east Africa, and home to three of the world’s last remaining northern white rhino. It is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, in a sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market.

Richard will be speaking about the poaching issues in Africa, specifically rhino poaching.
