The SES is delighted to announce that Angus Wingfield will be the Society's SOCIALS@GAUCHO speaker in February 2018 and will give a talk about Life and Death in KwaZulu Natal on Tuesday 27 February 2018 at the Gaucho (City), London.

Angus is the founder and director of Africa Wild Trails and has been planning and delivering expeditionary trips to the continent for many years. He has an extensive knowledge on anti-poaching, wildlife, conservation and bushcraft. Angus has worked with the military, young people's organisations (including the disadvantaged), adult groups, universities and international groups as an expedition leader.

Angus Wingfield InvitationThe province of KawaZulu Natal on the eastern seaboard of South Africa is one of the most diverse and stunning locations in the world. Wildlife conservation and the conservation of wild places has never been more important than it is right now as the pressures on nature increase daily. Whilst the focus is on threatened and endangered species, it is also important to gain knowledge from local sources on animal species that may become threatened to enable good conservation practices to be put in place before the situation becomes much more difficult. Studying wildlife in this remote biosphere of South Africa during Angus’ expeditions is key to providing important information for anti-poaching, conservation and the wider scientific community.
