Webinar Invitation: Conservation, Traveller Confidence and Reputation Management

Conservation, biodiversity and sustainable, responsible tourism are all hot topics at the moment – with the release of Minister Creecy’s High-Level Report putting the spotlight firmly on South Africa’s position (and policies) around the hunting, trade, management and handling of lion, elephant, leopard and rhinoceros.

Can conservation initiatives boost traveller confidence? And how important is South Africa’s stance in terms of the country’s reputation?

Join the panellists at 4pm on Wednesday, 30 June as they discuss the latest developments in captive breeding, animal interaction and conservation projects – and what it means for our tourism industry.

You’ll hear from:

  • Sherwin Banda, President of African Travel Inc., who is committed to ‘matching the right Africa with the right client’, while uplifting local communities and promoting wildlife conservation in Africa.
  • Lucille Sive, CEO of The Travel Corporation’s Africa Division, who is responsible for overseeing strategy, growth and sustainable policy for North American safari companies.
  • Keira Lee Powers, Bsoc.Sci & PDM focused in Political Science, Environmental & Geographical Science and Business Management, Director at SATSA, and central to the development of the SATSA Animal Interaction Guidelines.
  • Andre du Toit, Executive Head SATIB, speaking on the role and impact of Ranger Protect.
