Lulu Lytle talks to John Hare on his pioneering expeditions into China’s nuclear test area to save the critically endangered wild camel.
Join us on 5th October, 6.00 pm BST (please check your local time) when Lulu Lytle, Trustee of the Wild Camel Protection Foundation (WCPF) will be talking to Explorer, Conservationist, Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and co-Founder of WCPF, John Hare OBE about his extraordinary and incredibly dangerous explorations into China’s desert where nuclear testing had been taking place (and still is). This is where John Hare encountered an extraordinary new species of wild camel which has somehow managed to survive 43 atmospheric nuclear tests and live off salt water with a higher salt content than sea water. John Hare will talk about what drove him to set-up one of the largest and remotest nature reserves in the world- the Lop Nur Wild Camel National Nature Reserve. Lulu Lytle will also be talking to him about his adventures and travels on dromedary camels across the Sahara and around Lake Turkana in Kenya.
The conversation will be held via Zoom, and open to the first 100 participants. Lulu Lytle will be holding a Q&A session after the talk. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like to join this Talk so that we can provide you the link and password.
