Taking place in the striking rooftop lounge at the Great John Street Hotel, the evening is an opportunity for the public to meet with Mr Travers, and actively discuss how to apply the charity's compassionate conservation agenda to some of the most important issues facing wild animals today
This is the first time Mr Travers - eldest son of Born Free's legendary actors and co-founders Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers - has embarked on a UK regional tour but he feels that the timing could not be more appropriate, with concerns about the future of wildlife and the threats to the natural world being an international priority
The event, 'In Conservation about Compassionate Conservation', will start at 7pm and will feature welcome drinks, Mr Travers talk before concluding with delicious vegetarian food and a raffleMr Travers will discuss several topics from trophy hunting, illegal wildlife trade, animal welfare, the influence of social media on conservation and, of course, talk about Born Free's various global field and community projects
The evening is also designed to provide a platform for attendees to openly voice their opinions and discuss how charities like Born Free can actively work alongside the public to make a real difference to wild animal care and conservation around the worldWith this in mind, guests are encouraged to speak freely with Mr Travers and bring along any questions they wish
Tickets for the event cost £50 including welcome drinks and food and £25 of each ticket goes directly to Born Free to continue their vital conservation work in the UK and across the globe
