Dr James Borrell speaker at SES@GauchoCity in September

25th Sep 2018  Duration: 23 hours 59 minutes

The SES is delighted to announce that SES Member, SES Explorer Award Winner and SES Trustee Dr James Borrell will be the SES@GauchoCity speaker in September 2018 and will give a talk about Conservation Successes from the Skeleton Coast to the Serengeti on Tuesday 25 September 2018 at the Gaucho (City), London. These events are kindly hosted by Gaucho City and supported by Cadogan Tate, for which the SES is extremely grateful.

James Borrell 250918When James Borrell was awarded the SES Cadogan Tate Explorer Award back in 2015, the Society hoped - as with all Explorer Award winners - that they had helped a true 'Pioneer with Purpose' on their first steps to a successful career in their chosen field. What James has achieved has far exceeded those hopes; swiftly off the back of a successful expedition to Madagascar, he spent the first half of 2017 travelling 32,000kms across nine African countries in search of conservation success stories. Join us to hear those stories, and be inspired by his unfaltering optimism for conservation and the pioneering people and communities who share his passion to succeed.

Gaucho (City), I Bell Inn Yard, London EC3V OBL
