On Conservation in Papua New Guinea
November 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join the Yale International Relations Association (YIRA) for a conversation with 2020 World Fellow Ambroise Brenier, who is the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Country Director for Papua New Guinea. Ambroise leads the largest field conservation program in a country home to the third largest tropical rainforest in the world and surrounded by the world’s most diverse coral reefs. Ambroise and his team are working with the government and hundreds of indigenous communities around the country to triple Papua New Guinea’s marine protected areas coverage, preserve intact forests, promote the sustainable use of natural resources, and improve people's livelihoods. Prior to his work in Papua New Guinea, Ambroise led the Wildlife Conservation Society's marine conservation efforts in Madagascar and created dozens of community-managed fishery zones, which was awarded the United Nations Equator Prize in 2014. https://yale.zoom.us/j/99261562862Registration Info
