☼ JOIN US FOR A CONVERSATION ABOUT ANIMAL LIBRATION AND CONSERVATION IN THE AFRICAN CONTINENT. ☼
Direct Action Everywhere and March for Elephants, San Francisco (http://marchforelephants.org/) together with the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos (GMFER) is hosting a conversation featuring Prince Harris Pem's Taga, who is a Maasai from Kanya. Prince will share his experiences; his successes, difficulties, hopes and goals advocating for wildlife and nature in the context of a continent dominated by colonial modalities of conservation, and DxE will share with Prince its experiences and ideas governing the fundamentals of Animal Liberation.
It is our hope that this creative exhange of ideas will help western advocates understand our African brother and sisters and the animals they strive to protect, better, and that in turn, our African brother and sisters will take home with them the governing principles of animal liberation as practices by DxE.
For questions, please write to DxE and/or you may write GMFER, here as well: [email protected]
The event will be a dialogue circle where people can learn from each other and ask meaningful questions; please come, bring a friend or two and help us make it a real converstaion.
The Global March for Elephants and Rhinos and its SF chapter, MFE, extends a gracious and heartfelt thanks to DxE and Prince for all their good and extraordinary work and for hosting and participating in this event.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Prince Harris Pem's Taga is a native Maasai and a lifelong advocate for living sustainably with nature and wildlife. As the founder of Friends of Maasai MARA, Harris’s goal is to teach young people about their rich wildlife heritage and to engage his home community around the Maasai Mara National Preserve to protect wildlife and the local ecosystem for future generations. He accomplishes this through outreach to students and families, through wildlife programs in local schools, and by taking children out into the Maasai Mara Preserve to witness wildlife firsthand, which they would otherwise never see. Harris believes in nurturing the natural empathy that young people have, and that this will be the key to coexistence between people and wildlife in the 21st century.
