Explorers against Extinction is a unique event highlighting the threat of extinction to some of Africa's most iconic species including elephant, lion and rhino. Join us at London's Royal Geographical Society for an entertaining evening as leading explorers, adventurers, wildlife experts and conservationists, including Sir Ranulph Fiennes, described by the Guinness Book of Records as the ‘World’s Greatest Living Explorer’, come together to make a stand against extinction.
All profits from the evening will support our partners, all of whom are pivotal in the battle against extinction.
The small, dedicated team at Animals Saving Animals (ASA) focus on prevention. They train and deploy specialist anti-poaching dogs to squads across Africa protecting elephant and rhino. The aim is to raise enough money to fund further anti-poaching dogs for Rhino Conservation Botswana and Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2017. This pioneering conservation organisation rescues and rehabilitates orphaned elephants and is dedicated to the preservation of endangered species and the protection of habitats.
