Whose Planet Is it, Anyway?
Earth Day Challenges for a Crowded World

A discussion with Population Connection President & CEO, John Seager

World population has more than tripled since the middle of the 20th century —with devastating impacts on people and our natural world. Yet talking about overpopulation remains taboo in many circles. We can’t bet the future of our living planet on technical solutions alone. Ending overpopulation by removing the barriers to smaller families must be a priority on Earth Day — and every day!

Promoting One Health to Protect Endangered Gorillas

A discussion with our FIRST official Global Partner

One of Population Connection’s first partners was Conservation Through Public Health (CTPH). Based in Uganda, CTPH is an award-winning leader in gorilla and wildlife conservation. The organization’s vital mission is to focus on the health and interspecies relationships of wildlife, humans, and livestock in and around East Africa’s protected areas.

To mark this year’s Earth Day, we’ll be joined by CTPH’s Founder and Executive Director Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka. Dr. Gladys also sits on Population Connection’s Board of Directors and has won innumerable awards for her work, including a United Nations Environment Programme’s Champion of the Earth for Science and Innovation (2021), and a Uganda Veterinary Association World Veterinary Day Award (2020).

“Walking with Gorillas: The Journey of an African Wildlife Vet” by Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka

Our upcoming Page Turners Book Club meeting is an exciting one, as we will have the privilege of discussing a memoir with the author herself, Dr. Gladys Zikusoka!

As Uganda’s first wildlife veterinarian, Dr. Gladys has devoted her life to protecting endangered mountain gorillas and other wild animals, and her new memoir chronicles her journey from her animal-loving childhood to her current role as Founder and Executive Director of Conservation Through Public Health (our earliest Global Partner!).

In this memoir, she shares the challenges she faced in her career and details the amazing impacts her research has had on the conservation of these magnificent creatures and their habitats. Through her work, she has demonstrated the interconnectedness between wildlife, the environment, and human health, highlighting the importance of a holistic approach to conservation efforts. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of wildlife conservation and the inspiring work being done by Uganda’s first wildlife veterinarian!
