Join the World Affairs Council, Oregon Wild, and the Zimbabwe Artists Project for a fun, informative evening with Wildlife Conservation professionals from Africa.
In partnership with Oregon Wild and the Zimbabwe Artists Project, the World Affairs Council of Oregon welcomes 13 visitors from Africa traveling under the auspices of the International Visitor Leadership Program, the State Department's premier professional development program which aims to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations.
Visitors are spending three weeks in the U.S. participating in site visits and professional meetings to examine the topic of "Wildlife Conservation: Anti-Poaching and Anti-Trafficking Efforts in the U.S." The group includes park rangers and other wildlife officials from Angola, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
Mix and mingle with the visitors and other community members this evening while enjoying light appetizers, as Oregon Wild Conservation Director Steve Pedery gives a brief presentation on wildlife conservation efforts locally. Several visitors will also speak about poaching and wildlife conservation issues in Sub-Saharan Africa.
