People and Carnivores: Is Coexistence Possible?

Lisa Upson to speak on campus

Lisa Upson, executive director of People and Carnivores, will speak on Tuesday, April 24 at 5:30 p.m. in the Science Hall Commons. Her lecture is free and open to the public.

Large carnivores represent wilderness and mystery to many while others deplore them. After a century of persecution, people are now learning how to live alongside large carnivores on a shared western landscape.  Over the last 20 years, landowners and conservationists have developed and tested several conflict prevention tools and practices, yielding promise for a future in which we can coexist with wolves and grizzly bears.  The only question is whether we will choose that future.

The event is hosted by the Canisius College Institute for the Study of Human-Animal Relations and the Canisius Ambassadors for Conservation.
