‘Using honey bees as a natural deterrent for crop-raiding elephants’ -Lecture by Dr. Lucy King

Dr. King, in collaboration with Oxford University and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, explores the natural world for solutions to human-elephant conflict, in a research project that uses in-depth knowledge and observation of elephant behaviour to reduce damage from crop-raiding elephants using African honey bees.

Lucy King was brought up in Africa and has an MSc in Biology and a PhD in Zoology from Oxford University.

“Her research underlines how working with, rather than against, nature can provide humanity with many of the solutions to the challenges countries and communities face.” Achim Steiner, executive director of UNEP.
Please come to what will be a fascinating talk by an excellent speaker.
