Join us in celebration of International Women’s Day for this interactive talk and Q+A event to hear Dr Amy Dickman reflect on the essential, driving role that women have played in the conservation of lions and other large carnivores both in communities across Africa and within the dedicated group of female scientists that make up ‘The Pride Alliance’.
