Who is Ed Warner?

  • Radical conservationist
  • Exploration geologist
  • Researcher
  • Philanthropist

Ed Warner is a noted philanthropist and conservationist. A former geologist, Ed now dedicates his time as a conservation expert to research trips and efforts to save endangered animals. His long-standing love for Africa connects him deeply to the savannas and the animals living there, particularly the black rhino.

Ed’s radical conservation strategy focuses around partnerships between public conservation organizations and private landowners. His approach emphasizes the importance of making humans a part of the conservation equation; if conservationists and private landowners can work in harmony, the lives of endangered animals are much safer.

Ed also emphasizes the importance of economics. The livelihood of the indigenous people is a key part of the conservation equation, as well. Indigenous communities need realistic, viable avenues through which to earn a living in order to combat poaching.
