John Kahekwa gives a talk at King’s College, London

During his recent visit to London, John Kahekwa took the time to give a talk about his conservation work at the Department of War Studies, King’s College, London.

The audience was treated to a fascinating explanation of John’s work with his Pole Pole Foundation, and the difficulties he faces because of conflict and illegal mining in his area. Ian Redmond of the Born Free Foundation spoke about his concerns for the future of the Eastern Lowland Grauer’s gorillas, too.

John Kahekwa’s holistic approach to conservation is leading the way in his field. Education is a corner stone of the work that the Pole Pole Foundation does in the D R Congo.
It was good to hear what John had to say in London.
