I’s now the third time that a memorial lecture will occur at the Royal Institution in London. The 10th March, Mark Carwardine, co-author of Last Chance to see and famous zoologist, will give a talk about about his travels around the world and will describe some of his experiences and encounters with wild animals and even wilder people around the world – including some hilarious behind-the-scenes stories from Last Chance to See. And, inevitably, he has a thing or two to say about the state of the world.
You can buy tickets online (£12 or £20) thanks to Save the Rhino. After the lecture, there will be an auction of very rare and valuable Douglas Adams items.

Once again all profits from the lecture and fundraising auction will be split between Save the Rhino International and the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, the two charities of which Douglas was patron.
