Methow Conservancy “First Tuesday” Program

Understanding Human-Carnivore Interactions

Tuesday, February 7th, 7:00-8:30pm at the Merc Playhouse, Twisp

 

What fosters a rancher’s participation in mitigation to coexist with wolves?  This is one of the questions Carol Bogezi, a Ugandan Ph.D. candidate in the Wildlife Science program at the University of Washington, is asking.  Bogezi was recently awarded the Bullitt Foundation’s Environment Leadership Award for her research on human-carnivore interactions and coexistence strategies to reduce conflict between people and wildlife.  Bogezi’s current research has been focused in the Puget Sound as well as the Methow Valley, and she hopes her work will further wildlife conservation not just in Washington but also in Uganda and throughout the world.

 

The program is free and open to everyone.  The doors open at 6:30pm with light refreshments available for purchase.
