Nick Bubb gives us an overview of the state of wildlife conservation in the world today. He explains why there is still a lot to be done and how governments, companies and citizens need to work together to protect our environment and critically endangered species. Wildlife conservation provides jobs, improves livelihoods and helps to address the effects of environmental and social changes.
Nick Bubb heads up Global Development at Fauna & Flora International (FFI), the world’s oldest international wildlife conservation charity. FFI supports a great number of conservation programs in 47 countries, which integrate scientific expertise and local community engagement.
Nick’s varied background includes significant time spent as an: engineer, professional ocean racer, sports sponsorship expert and wealth manager. After an expedition to Antarctica in 2012 and seeing the first-hand effects of climate change, Nick decided to leave the world of financial management behind and combine all his skills, experiences & networks, and dedicate himself to environmental causes. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
