Discover the elusive Gray Wolf at Lindsay Wildlife Museum
SF Bay Area’s Premier Wildlife Rehabilitation and Nature Education Center in partnership with the California Wolf Center presents
Return of the California Gray Wolf
Thursday, March 20
WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. —March,10 2014— Lindsay Wildlife Museum and the California Wolf Center present an exciting evening uncovering the mystery that surrounds the Return of the California Gray Wolf—a native California species.
After being extirpated across the lower 48 states, gray wolves are making a comeback in the Pacific Northwest. In December 2011, a male wolf dubbed “OR-7” crossed into California, marking the first documented wolf in the state in nearly 90 years. This presentation will explore wolf ecology, the history and current status of wolf recovery, and what the California Wolf Center is doing to help wolves return to California and beyond.
The speaker, Lauren Richie, is Director of California Wolf Recovery for the California Wolf Center and works to pave the way for wolf recovery in California. A conservation biologist, Lauren previously worked to resolve human-wildlife conflicts for Defenders of Wildlife and holds degrees in biology and environmental management.
