Associate Professor Lian Pin Koh had the honour of being invited by President Clinton, Secretary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative University 2015 in Miami, Florida last week.
Along with fellow panelists and participating students, he discussed how innovative technologies, including conservation drones, can help monitor wildlife and better inform campaigns against illegal trade and poaching.
Associate Professor Koh was joined by esteemed co-panelists, including Dr. M. Sanjayan – Executive Vice President of Conservation International, Ms. Candace Crespi – Campaign Director of the Oceanic Preservation Society (the team behind landmark films, such as ‘The Cove’, ‘BlackFish’ and ‘Racing Extinction’), and Mr. Bryan Arroyo – Assistant Director of the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
