Dinner Guest Speaker

Hear from Emma Still from Creating for Conservation (C4C).

Creating for Conservation (C4C) raises funds to support Conservation Education in Africa. A South Australian partner for the last 10 years, of Perth based Painted Dog Conservation Inc, we have been holding fundraising events and dedicating 100% proceeds to support conservation clubs and tertiary conservation careers for young people in Zambia and Zimbabwe.

To learn how to love, value and protect the wildlife they live with is what we focus on.

C4C is about making REAL connections and REAL difference. We are willing to feel the impact ‘hands on’ and dedicate the heart work in their world; teaching in conservation clubs, creating conservation learning spaces, co-hosting international conservation exchange programs and we continually seek more ways to be that difference.

We believe we really can save the world, one human wildlife connection at a time.

At APDT , C4C will host a ‘Direct from Africa’ stall filled with products that connect you to the bigger picture and involve you in this difference.
