In July 2020, Animal People attended the annual United Nations High Level Political Forum as a member of the Animal Issues Thematic Cluster. As part of this event, Animal People Executive Director Wolf Gordon Clifton conducted a series of interviews with experts on various aspects of animal protection and sustainability. We will be releasing recordings of those interviews here on Animal People Forum.
In the video below, Wachira Benson Kariuki, director of legal affairs and advocacy for Africa Network for Animal Welfare, speaks with Wolf Gordon Clifton. They discuss the most pressing issues affecting animals across Africa, the receptiveness of African political leaders to animal protection concerns, and the effect of development on animal welfare.
