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”
