Conservation Careers Podcast

Sep 7, 2022

In this episode we’re speaking with Dr Kate Evans - Founder and Director of Elephants for Africa. 

She is an award-winning behavioural ecologist and conservation biologist, with over 25 years of experience in running wildlife research and conservation projects. 

Since establishing the charity Elephants for Africa in 2007, Kate has been responsible for funding their applied research, education, and community development projects throughout southern Africa. 

Through this she’s secured over £1,500,000 from trusts, foundations, corporate sponsorships (including Hugo Boss), private donors, online campaigns and events. 

In this podcast we talk about her journey to establish Elephants for Africa and what she’s learnt along the way. We also discuss the impact elephants have on local communities, and how they can both exist more peacefully. 

We also chat about the importance of fundraising as a core skill all aspiring and professional conservationists should develop. Finally, we announce that Kate will be the course leader for our latest training called Fundraising for Conservation Projects. 

As always, it’s a fun, informative and inspiring chat. Enjoy.
