“Irish Woman Lynn Clifford, Conservationist In Malawi
To a subject we’ve covered on this show many times before and that’s the illegal wildlife trade. It’s the fourth most lucrative transnational crime after drugs, arms, and human trafficking, and it’s threatening some of the world’s most iconic species with extinction.

About two hours drive east of Malawi’s capital city, Lilongwe, close to that natural wonder, Lake Malawi, lies the Thuma Forest reserve one of the few reserves in the country which is still home to elephants and buffalo, as well as many other species, including a variety of birds, insects, trees and plants.

Deep within that forest, some several kilometres along a dirt road, lies a base camp for conservationists. They’re called the ‘Wildlife Action Group’ and their director just happens to be an Irish woman.

Lynn Clifford is originally from Swords in County Dublin and, on a recent visit to her family in Ireland, she met with Richard Collins at his home in Malahide.”
