‘MONEY, Myths and Man-eaters’ is the provocative title of a fascinating and wide ranging charity talk at The Public Hall later this month in aid of African villages by an Oxbridge academic.

The talk, on November 27, is hosted by East Devon’s Dr Amy Dickman who lives and works in Tanzania.

She is a senior researcher for Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit and one of the world’s experts on big cats.

You can learn about Amy’s efforts to conserve big cats in Tanzania against a backdrop of tribal tensions, poverty, man-eating lions sorcery and witchcraft.

The event is organised by the Rotary Club of Exmouth to provide medical support for the rural villagers of Tanzania.

Tickets are available from Rotary Club members or from Exmouth or Budleigh Salterton Tourist Information Cents for �10 including a Ploughman’s supper with a glass of wine.
