Will Travers of the Born Free Foundation offers a multimedia presentation on wildlife conservation in East Africa.
Speaker Biography: Will Travers has dedicated most of his life to wildlife issues, ever since he lived with his family in Kenya while his parents, actors Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers, made the film "Born Free" (1966). In 1984 he co-founded the charitable organization which has become known as the Born Free Foundation. Born Free's projects and campaigns now span five continents and are supported worldwide. In 2002, Will brought the message of "compassionate conservation" to America and launched Born Free USA, now a nationally recognized leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation.
