On 9 July Dr Chris Sandbrook of CU Conservation Research Institute will give a Zoom talk on

Conservation, human rights and environmental justice

Wildlife conservation is often portrayed in a positive light. However, the conservation movement has a troubled history when it comes to questions of human rights and environmental justice, including the eviction, impoverishment and disenfranchisement of marginalised peoples. This talk will outline some of the human rights and environmental justice issues raised by wildlife conservation, and what can be done to tackle them.
