What the Killings of Cecil and Harambe Should Have Taugth Us | Pamela Reed Sanchez | TEDxFlourCity
As Pamela Reed Sanchez tells us, the social media outrage with the killings of Cecil the Lion and Harambe the Gorilla obscured the bigger issues related to wildlife and made clear that we are disconnected from nature. Pamela explains the real lessons to be learned.
Pamela Reed Sanchez became the Executive Director of the Seneca Park Zoo Society in June of 2014. Under her leadership, the Zoo has significantly increased the community’s awareness of zoos as conservation organizations, dedicated to saving animals from extinction. She is a passionate advocate for species survival and human action to impact environmental sustainability.
