Based on research visits to national parks and nature reserves in 30 countries, RSGS Chairman Roger Crofts gives an illustrated tour of these special places, why they exist, and how they are looked after. He takes stock of the big issues – wildlife crime, deforestation, too many tourists – and how to address them, and considers whether we are winning the battle to protect and preserve these vital assets.

Tickets are on sale via Eventbrite; RSGS members and students are entitled to free entry on the door – all subject to availability.
