K. Ullas Karanth’s Remarkable Keynote Address

Dr. K. Ullas Karanth, Director – CWS, was chosen to make the keynote address at the 2018 Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Annual Conference held in Seattle.

In a speech that had humour and impact in equal measures, Dr. Karanth emphasized to an auditorium of zoo and aquarium professionals how their support of field conservation is making a tangible difference for wildlife and wild places.

Walking the audience through a lifetime of conservation and science work, he drew the most laughs when he mentioned “…and I became instantly unpopular… ’cause I was saying that the emperor has no clothes”

When we can celebrate the cultural diversity of India with such gusto, she asked, why not celebrate the richness of our natural wealth as well?
