I am re-publishing this podcast from last year for a couple reasons: One, I have lost my voice and have had the flu for the past couple weeks and have fallen behind in interviews! Two, the Spring Wildlife Conservation Expo is just around the corner on April 21, 2018. If you love wildlife and nature and meeting amazing like-minded people, you should attend the Expo! 

Location: 4200 Farm Hill Blvd (Canada College Theater), Redwood City, CA

Ticket and expo information can be found at

But here is a highlight of the amazing speakers and conservationists you can expect to see at the Wildlife Conservation Network Spring Expo...

  • Luwi Ngulukla - Wildlife Crime Prevention in Zambia
  • Jane Horgan - Cheetah Conservation Botswana
  • Rosamira Guillen and Hosanna Vega - Proyecto Titi in Columbia (conservation of the adorable cotton-top tamarins)

Charlie is the Board Chair for the Wildlife Conservation Network. He retired early as a successful Stanford-educated entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. He founded software company Rubicon Technology in 1989 and sold it in 1994. His retirement lasted six days, until he launched full-time into applying his business acumen and experience to wildlife conservation. In the 1990s, Charlie helped the Cheetah Conservation Fund and the Snow Leopard Conservancy grow into world-class conservation programs. In doing so, he recognized the opportunity for a new model of wildlife conservation, and in 2002 he co-founded the Wildlife Conservation Network to identify, qualify and invest in the best and brightest conservationists around the world. The synthesis of creativity and practicality in Charlie's approach has inspired thousands of passionate donors, as well as a rising generation of conservation pioneers.
