Life on the Front Lines: Protecting Endangered Wildlife from Extinction

A Talk by Damien Mander Founder & CEO, International Anti-Poaching Foundation Visit site

Damien Mander is an Iraq war veteran who served as a Naval clearance diver and special operations sniper for the Australian Defense Force. In 2009, while travelling through Africa, he was inspired by the work of rangers and the plight of wildlife. Liquidating his life savings, the International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF) was established to be the last line of defence for nature, protecting over 4 million hectares of African wilderness.

In 2017 Damien founded ‘Akashinga – Nature Protected by Women’, a program that has already grown to over 170 employees, becoming the only group of nature reserves in the world to be protected by women.

In this inspirational talk, you will learn Damien's incredible story of conservation on the front lines.
