Webinar Presenters

Dr. Sam Ferreira

After many years in the wild, Sam Ferreira shares lessons at his work places. From doing fieldwork for doctorate studies in coastal forests of KwaZulu-Natal; collecting rodents and shrews in the Eastern Cape; controlling feral cats and studying seals and killer whales at sub-Antarctic Marion Island; and planning marine reserves, doing dolphin and seabird research and eradicating alien rats in New Zealand. But Sam’s lessons are mostly African – he is African!

Sam studied elephant, lion, leopards, rhinos, hippos, all kinds of antelope and crocodiles amongst people from southern to eastern Africa.

For Sam, people and wildlife together is at the heart of sustainability and thriving landscapes. Sam published 133 scientific peer-reviewed papers, three chapters in books, a popular book, lots of technical reports, and often talks at national and international conferences as well as act as a public speaker.

He is a SACNASP professional scientist with 3613 citations, an H-index of 33, I10-Index of 82, and RG-Score of 35.89 (95th percentile). Sam’s day job is a large mammal ecologist at South African National Parks.

Calming the perfect rhino poaching storm

To trade, or not to trade? Is that really the question?

Sam Ferreira will reflect on African rhinos and how getting rhinos right in South Africa could be the most important setting of a conservation benchmark in the 21st century. But, is it just an elitist conservation focus that the globe should consider?

Sam also will ask hard questions on the complexities of global economic processes that have local effects on natural resources of Africa. What insights can these global processes and influences such as the COVID-19 pandemic provide for calming rhino poaching storms?
