Wade Davis public lecture Other events...
Presented by: The State Library of WA

Dr Wade Davis (Canada) is a best-selling author, intellectual, photographer, Explorer-in-Residence for the National Geographic as well as a noted two-time TED Talk speaker.

Described as “A rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all life’s diversity”, Wade Davis is perhaps the most the most articulate and influential western advocate for the world's indigenous cultures.

Through his work as a Harvard Anthropologist and Ethnobotanist he spent years living and working in the jungles of South America as a plant explorer. In more recent years he has travelled to and lived with Indigenous communities in some of the most remote places on the planet.

Against a backdrop of extraordinary stories that ignite the imagination, Wade Davis explains the importance of ancient wisdom in teaching us valuable lessons in how to protect the future of our earth.

The talk will be followed by a book signing. Books will be available for purchase.
