Red Wolf Conservation is Lecture Series Topic, Sept. 26

September 22, 2017

 


        

JONESBORO – "Red Wolf Conservation" is the topic for the first presentation in the 2017-18 Lecture-Concert Series at Arkansas State University.

Kim Wheeler, executive director of the Red Wolf Coalition, will speak Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m. in the third-floor auditorium of the Carl R. Reng Student Union (GPS: 101 N. Caraway Road).

As head of the coalition, she advocates for the long-term survival of red wolf populations by teaching about the animal and by fostering public involvement in conservation efforts.

As of April 2017, fewer than 45 wild red wolves remain, all of them on northeastern North Carolina’s Albemarle Peninsula.

The Red Wolf Coalition envisions the long-term survival of free ranging, self-sustaining red wolf populations.  Wheeler also will discuss A-State's involvement with supporting efforts to repopulate the red wolf, and how individuals can get involved in the conservation effort.

The presentation will include a showing of the award-winning documentary film "Red Wolf Revival."

The Lecture-Concert Series event is supported with funding from the Department of Biological Sciences.
