Join Denver Zoo to celebrate the conservation biology programs we support around the world, with a special focus on the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains. The evening will feature Denver Zoo staff working in the field, animal demonstrations, and special presentations. Denver Zoo is honored to recognize 2013 Conservation Award winner, Executive Director of the Inter Tribal Buffalo Council Jim Stone, for his work to transform the ITBC into a true conservation organization by getting tribes throughout the country to embrace the idea of restoring conservation herds of bison. The keynote speaker for the evening is Dr. Joel Berger, Chair and Professor of the Wildlife Conservation Division at the University of Montana, who will speak on conservation in North America. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the conservation biology work happening in our backyard. Denver Zoo’s field conservationists will be available to discuss their important work and answer questions.
While the event is free and open to the public, space is limited and we ask that you register in advance.
The presentation is not intended for kids and is not a family-friendly event. Adults only please.
