Dr. Jane Goodall to Speak at Wildscreen Festival
Wildscreen Festival 2020 is thrilled to announce that pioneering Ethologist, Founder of The Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane Goodall, will be appearing at this year’s event in conversation with conservation photographer Tom Mangelsen and wildlife filmmaker Sandesh Kadur.
At the world's leading international nature film festival’s biannual event from
19th-23rd October, Goodall and Mangelsen – longtime friends as well as legends in the conservation field - will discuss the impact of photography and film in bringing conservation issues to a wider audience, the changes in storytelling techniques over the years and how environmental threats and issues are fast evolving.
"Photography can play such a strong role in bringing the natural world into our lives and homes and introduces us to new species in wild places that most of us will never have the chance to witness. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to talk with Tom and Sandsesh on these issues - thank you iLCP and Wildscreen."
- Jane Goodall
“We are proud and excited that Jane Goodall has joined our impressive Wildscreen 2020 speaker line-up. The world-renowned ethologist and conservationist who redefined 'what it means to be human' is relaxed and engaged but, as always, her message is clear: “What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
- Sue Martineau, interim CEO Wildscreen
“iLCP is delighted to bring together two of our Senior Fellows in a conservation conversation with their friend Jane Goodall; conservation work can so often be solitary, so we are delighted that they can share this time to discuss the importance of conservation and photography.”
- Susan Norton, Executive Director, International League of Conservation Photographers
