Wolves and Ranching: Realities, Challenges, and Hope
Join us for our third year of supporting co-existence efforts with ranchers. Wolves and Ranching: the realities, challenges, and hope
The goal of the panel is to allow participants an opportunity to hear from ranchers and scientist who have worked in the trenches, lived the life, and witnessed firsthand, the realities, challenges, and hope surrounding wolves and livestock on shared landscapes. Looking beyond the science, the panel also seeks to also address the social and cultural dynamics surrounding the topic of wolves and ranching.
It is our desire to encourage meaningful discussion among not just panelists, but between the audience and panelists as well. Each speaker will present for up to 25 minutes followed by a 10 minute Q & A. At the end of the presentations, an open floor will be provided to host a dialogue, ideas, and questions. We welcome all to participate as we look to gain a deeper insight into wolves and ranching in the modern world.
