Conservation and Conversations – “Love, Life, and Elephants” by Daphne Sheldrick

May 19, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

A virtual event. Cost: $10 per device.

Join the conversation! Connect with ecology and wildlife conservation to critically explore a variety of environmental and conservation issues. Each month participants will receive a discussion guide (including book, film, and podcast recommendations!) and access to a 60-minute live virtual discussion with Zoo educators. We hope to include your whole family in a fascinating conversation on conservation topics each month.

This program is for adults, 18+. Younger readers may participate at their parents/guardians’ discretion based on media selections.

Have you ever hand-raised an orphaned elephant? Daphne Sheldrick has! Join us in reading her memoir, “Love, Life, and Elephants” and explore the extraordinary life of this dedicated conservationist. Sheldrick and the Nairobi National Park have fascinating stories to tell and differing perspectives to share. Our book discussion is designed for adults only — but the reading guide included in the program cost will offer media suggestions and discussion questions suitable for children.

*Book available through LFPL or wherever books are sold
