Sean Willmore, founder and director of the Thin Green Line Foundation, will deliver a public address and conversation at UniSA’s Hawke Building on Wednesday, March 16 at 6pm.
An Evening with Sean Willmore will discuss the ongoing “war” between the world’s park rangers, armed militias and poachers. Having worked and travelled through more than 50 countries in his conservation efforts, Willmore will speak on his experiences in these regions, and share personal, emotional and humorous stories from his adventures. The Thin Green Line Foundation helps to support the work of the world’s park rangers, particularly those who are threatened or killed in the line of crucial conservation work. The group’s activities are generally carried out in conflict zones, or areas where there is lacking protection for park rangers protecting species from exploitation and extinction. The award winning conservationist formed the foundation after the release of his 2007 film looking into the lives and stories of rangers, The Thin Green Line. Willmore was also featured in a 2014 episode of Australian Story detailing the rise of his foundation thanks to an encounter with British Conservationist, Dr Dame Jane Goodall.
