Schools Saving Species

March 19 | 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

In this session, National Geographic Explorer Dr. Luke Dollar recounts ups, downs, problems, and solutions from more than two decades in fieldwork, conservation, and education in Africa and the United States.

Dollar’s scientific research focuses on predators ranging from big cats  to Madagascar’s largest carnivore, the fosa, and satellite analyses of their habitat.  More than half of his overall efforts, however, are concentrated on grassroots education and sustainable employment programs for local people sharing space with Africa’s predators.  Dollar’s efforts have not only yielded a trove of data on carnivore biology and behavior, but his programs have led to the development of scholastic and sustainable business programs benefiting thousands of local subsistence farmers and their children.

This is a FREE event  that will be held on Zoom, however registration is required. For more information on how to register, please visit on Facebook.com/teensciencecafewhiteville
