Dr. Axel Moehrenschlager delivered his lecture entitled "Reaching Beyond Barriers to Restore Nature and Hope" at this year’s St Andrews Prize seminar.

In this talk, Dr Axel Moehrenschlager, Director of Conservation & Science at Calgary Zoological Society, examined the impact of rising human populations and the unprecedented pressures on nature as well as humanity itself. He discussed how the science and practice of conservation has been developing to combat these issues. He looks at whether our response is enough and how we can attract the support needed to confront these global challenges for the good of nature and humanity.

Dr. Axel Moehrenschlager has conducted research and training to develop science-based solutions for effective conservation for over 25 years. He has a Ph.D. from Oxford University, is an Erskine Fellow at New Zealand’s University of Canterbury and an Adjunct Associate Professor at Canada’s University of Calgary.
