Lindsay Wildlife Alliance Welcomes Famed Professor to for Spring Speaker Event

Enjoy brunch at Lindsay and a fascinating presentation by Dr. Madden on Monday, March 19, from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Every year, Lindsay Wildlife Alliance coordinates a world-renowned speaker for their spring fundraiser. This year, the Alliance is partnering with Lindsay’s Conservation Icons speaker series for one of their most fascinating presenters!

One of the world’s foremost expert on integrating Geographic Information Systems (GIS) into ecological phenomena, Dr. Madden’s work examines landscape-scale biological and physical processes and human impacts on the environment. Her presentation will focus on “Managing Conflict between free-ranging elephants and humans in Zimbabwe.”

Elephants are widely considered to be the major driver for wildlife conflict and biodiversity changes in African ecosystems. Wild elephants often raid human crops, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual losses, as well as deepening the rift between local communities and international conservation strategies.

“This inspiring presentation about the power of one individual to galvanize action on behalf of wildlife the world over is something everyone should see,” said Lindsay’s Executive Director Cheryl McCormick.”All money raised goes to the Lindsay Wildlife Alliance, which funds education and rehabilitation programs at Lindsay Wildlife.
