Susan is currently the Vice President International Policy at the Wildlife Conservation Society. The Wildlife Conservation Society are active in more than 60 countries around the world. They are on the ground, working with local people in conserving wildlife, wild places and their habitats.
Susan tells us what it takes to change policies and mentalities in the topic of conservation. From international ban of ivory trade to today’s consumer consciousness, every choice we make has an impact on a global ecosystem.
Her work involves working both with local communities and with governments to change policy.
Europe has recently banned the sale of ivory: Sue talks about how that ban came about and what it will mean for elephant populations.
