How might global collaboration on animal conservation work? This is the theme of the second event in the Terrible Beauty discussion series.

Habitats for wild animals are shrinking as a result of continually expanding human populations. This is causing wild animals, including elephants, to stray ever closer to populated areas – resulting in conflicts between humans and wild animals. Because humans fear losing their cattle or agricultural land because of wild animal incursions, the animals are often killed. Maureen Kinyanjui and Ben-Okita Ouma, both animal welfare experts, demonstrate from differing perspectives how animal-human conflict leads to exploitative practice. In addition, they will show how global collaboration on animal welfare could work well.
