Join hands with Saba at Hunstanton




Saba Douglas-Hamilton brings her show A Life With Elephants to the Princess Theatre in Hunstanton next Thursday (April 11).

She is a conservationist and TV presenter, appearing on such shows as The Secret Life of Elephants.

The evening will look at the conservation work she has been undertaking in Kenya to save these threatened beasts.

She said: “Part of my talk will be about my early childhood in Tanzania with Boadicea, Ariadne and other ferocious females – both human and elephant – some of whom (elephants) my father was studying and others (human) that raised me, and also about our years in Uganda fighting to save elephants just after the dictator, Idi Amin, was deposed.

“I’ve got some lovely film clips to illustrate my decade with the BBC natural history unit, filming rare or endangered wildlife, and also of the key moments that changed the course of my life and brought me back to conservation.

“Of course, there’s a lot about the work we’re doing to conserve elephants in north Kenya, studying the minds of these fascinating giants and their intense social relationships, as well as my current passion working with eco-warriors from the local communities to catalyse a grass root environmental movement.

“Oh, and there’s a bit about my kids too, growing up as Wildlings under the tutelage of several Samburu warriors!

“What’s inspired me to do this tour is knowing that so many people across the world have a great love for Africa or for wildlife and want to do something to help.

“But too often one is left with an awful feeling of impotence in the face of the many environmental challenges afflicting every part of our globe.

“Part of the reason I’m going on tour is to reach out to the vast constituency of wildlife lovers that are out there in the hope that they’ll feel inspired to get involved.

“I love Obama’s comment ‘we are the change we seek’ and I truly believe that by joining hands we can make a difference.

“Join hands with us! Alone we might achieve great things, but together we can change the world!”

Tickets are priced £22.50/£18.50.
