Event description

Description

A thought provoking, illustrated presentation exploring the myths and realities of wildlife in captivity, the plight of captive wild animals in Canada and how we can all contribute to creating a better, more humane world for animals.


Rob Laidlaw is a Chartered Biologist, award-winning author of nine children’s books and the founder of the wildlife protection charity Zoocheck. He has worked from Canada’s north to tropical Asia on almost every kind of advocacy initiative from lobbying governments to rescuing animals and regularly speaks to groups both at home and abroad about animal protection issues and advocacy. In 2014 Laidlaw received the Frederic A. McGrand Lifetime Achievement Award for substantial contributions to animal welfare in Canada.


Note: Doors open at 7pm. Lecture begins at 7:30, with Q&A session afterwards. 9:30 end time.
