The next ALWG meeting will take place at the Mpala Research Centre in Kenya with the option to attend the KWS Carnivore Workshop and/or an excursion to Laikipia.
WildCRU, part of the Zoology Department at Oxford University founded and developed by ALWG member David Macdonald, has produced:
The WildCRU Game: Global Carnivore Conservation.
This game allows youngsters and adults to experience the challenges of solving conservation problems, playing the roles of real team members undertaking real projects. It's a cooperative game – the team that works together best for conservation, wins!
Their goal, in addition to increasing the amount of fun and of carnivores in the world, is to get this game into schools and communities across the world and especially in the local communities where we work. Often these communities are poor, so we need people who can afford the game to buy it for people who can’t.
To achieve this WildCRU urgently needs your help with their Kickstarter project. You can buy a game for yourself and/or contribute to the cost of a game to be donated to a school or community anywhere from Zimbabwe to Sumatra.
