Workshop preview: Lion programmes – How to make sure you pick the right partner
Wednesday, 23 September | 17:10 – 17:30
Captive cats have been in the news a lot recently. The newly released film on canned hunting has generated a lot of media attention, as well as the tragic events around the worlds’ most famous lion Cecil.
During this workshop Dr Jackie Abell will be presenting the guidelines developed by WYSE Work and Volunteer Abroad’s Volunteer Working Group on how a volunteer organisation can identify the right and the wrong partners on the ground when working with captive cats.
