Alison Jolly’s Madagascar: An Evening with Hilary Bradt

Date: Thursday 23 April 2015
Location: Hatchards Piccadilly

Madagascar is one of the world’s natural jewels – and few people knew it better than Alison Jolly. A world renowned primatologist and conservationist, Thank you, Madagascar is her eyewitness account of the extraordinary biodiversity of Madagascar and the environment of its people. At the book’s heart lies a conflict between three different views of nature. Is the extraordinary forest treasure-house of Madagascar a heritage for the entire world? Is it a legacy of the forest dwellers’ ancestors, bequeathed to serve the needs of their living descendants? Or is it an economic resource to pillage for short-term gain?

Exploring these questions and much more will be Hilary Bradt, founder of Bradt travel guides, Emilie Filour and Jane Wilson.

‘A captivating and absorbing account that reveals how the people and the land of Madagascar captured her heart’ – Sir David Attenborough

 

The event will begin at 6pm.

Tickets are £8, redeemable against the purchase of the book on the night.
