If you are an animal lover, then I highly recommend the famous Wildlife Conservation Network Expo happening Saturday October 13 in San Francisco. The saving of the world’s elephants, zebras, lions, cheetahs, penguins, wolves, painted dogs, snow leopards and more will be on display in full living color. Plus you may learn about a few new animals, such as the exotic cotton-top tamarin and the stunning okapi.
Much like a VC firm has a portfolio of companies, Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) supports a portfolio of wildlife conservationists. At the Expo, you will meet 20 of these impressive pioneers who risk their lives daily to save the world’s most endangered animals. You can also walk through the inspirational booths of 50 acclaimed conservation entities, everyone from the Red Panda Network to Save The Frogs. And of course, you will get to see my favorite wild animal, the head of WCN, Charles Knowles, in conversation with Saba Douglas-Hamilton of the popular BBC series Big Cat Diary on the topic of “Are Zoos Doing Enough?"
