Win tickets to see Saba Douglas-Hamilton

We are giving away a pair of tickets for In the Footsteps of Elephants with Saba Douglas-Hamilton - an inspiring and heart-warming look at how 'Save the Elephants' helped raise millions of dollars to protect elephant populations across Africa.

Elephant conservationist and filmmaker, Saba Douglas-Hamilton, was born and raised amongst elephants and nomads in the savannahs of East Africa. Saba has spent her life working to protect the African elephant from poaching, killing and trafficking.  

Her father, Iain Douglas-Hamilton, founded ‘Save the Elephants’ in 1993 and Saba, her husband, a group of dedicated scientists and the local Samburu people, have been fighting the ivory trade ever since.   

She'll talk of the courage and commitment of individual Samburu warriors who regularly risk their lives fighting poachers and tending to sick and injured animals.  Also, stories of old elephant friends, some she’s known for years, who regularly visit and even sleep in the camp with her and her family.

Saba will also talk of her experiences as a wildlife filmmaker and will illustrate her show with beautiful footage and photos from her time filming with elephants and other wildlife.

Tickets available here for Tuesday 27th September at 7.30pm at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and elsewhere across the UK.
