Writer's Rebel - On the Brink
Save the Date for 'On the Brink' Monday November 30th @ 7 pm
Join us on zoom with a host of special guests speaking out for endangered species
Over the coming decade over one million species face extinction. It is estimated that 200 species go extinct every day. We can remain silent or we can lend our voices however best we can to try to save them.
On the Brink takes place online on Monday November 30th at 7pm GMT to commemorate Remembrance Day for Lost Species (www.lostspeciesday.org). We have 20 writers and cultural figures reading new work and speaking to specific animals at threat from extinction. KAAP Founder Emily Walker will be speaking on the silent extinction giraffes are facing. Additionally, you'll hear from:
As well as Nana Oforiatta Ayim, Lily Cole, Prerna Singh Bindra, Lydia Millet, Sangu Iyer, Laura Jean McKay, Laura Coleman, Elizabeth Kolbert and more.
David Lindo the Urban Birder, entomologist Erica McAlister, Mya-Rose Craig aka 'BirdGirlUK', and BBC Springwatch's Gillian Burke are our four illustrious comperes.
This event will be hosted on Zoom and Facebook Live. More details in the follow up messages after you register.
