EASTBOURNE College students had a talk from naturalist and wildlife expert Manny Mvula.

Sixth form pupils were told about the work of The Born Free Foundation and the snaring activities and conservation projects in Africa.

The Born Free Foundation was founded by Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers following the success of the film Born Free. Manny Mvula is an experienced ranger and guide in South Luangwa National Park. He is also a co-founder of the poverty alleviation charity, The High Five Club.

Manny has worked with Rachel McRobb from the South Luangwa conservation society on de-snaring projects and their work was been the inspiration for a student performance which has since grown into a full scale professional production, Snared.

This play is at the Under Ground Theatre this week prior to a national tour.

Snared performs at 8pm on September 21 and 22 and at 4pm on September 23.

Tickets are available in person from The Under Ground Theatre and Tourist Information or by calling 0845 680 1926.
