Sustaining Our Northwest World: Carnivore Conservation in the Pacific Northwest

November 17, 2013

What would our forests look like without big predators such as mountain lions and wolves? Join Assistant Professor Aaron Wirsing, University of Washington College of Forest Resources, in an exploration of large carnivore conservation. Using his own research on interactions between tiger sharks and their prey in Australia as well as some recent case studies from our national parks, Dr. Wirsing will make the case for carnivore conservation and how we can manage resources to preserve the carnivores of the Pacific Northwest.
