Monday, March 26, 2012 @ 7:00 PM-8:30 PM
Featured Speaker: James Halfpenny, Ph.D., carnivore ecologist, animal tracker, educator and author; president, A Naturalist’s World; Fellow, The Explorers Club
Reintroduced in 1995 and 1996, wolves are the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem’s top carnivore. Although they attract millions of people to observe them in the wild, some loathe and fear their successful comeback in the Rocky Mountains. Dr. Halfpenny shares the wolves’ behavioral stories, ecological relationships and management alternatives. You’ll hear about pack structures and research revealing new understanding of wolf behavior. Wolf management has changed over the years, and recent delisting has brought new challenges. Jim’s personal encounters provide an intimate look at these stunning and intelligent creatures. Don’t miss this captivating talk on wolves in Yellowstone.
