Wildlife conservation, from the top down
Join us Thursday August 31st, 2017!
Join us at our 7th annual Wild x Wild photography exhibition of wildlife 'selfies' captured from more than 60 remote cameras across Colorado.
Enjoy a cash bar, light refreshments, and a presentation by Dr. Steve Berwick in the Digital Dome!
All proceeds support RMCC's mission to conserve wildlife from the top down through scientific research, community projects, and education initiatives.
What do Asiatic lions in India and mountain lions in Northern Colorado have in common? More than you think! Join Dr. Steve Berwick on a breathtaking journey to the Gir Forest of northwest India where the only population of Asiatic lion in the world live alongside nomadic Maldharis, local herders. Featured in a National Geographic special, Dr. Berwick’s study transports you back to a time when little was known about this rare cat, and brings you forward to today where lion and man maintain a tenuous co-existence.
In addition, Rocky Mountain Cat Conservancy researchers will be on hand to offer a peek into the lions and other wildlife species in your backyard – Fort Collins’ elusive mountain lion, Colorado’s top predator. Two cats, two worlds…one great time!
Date: Thursday, August 31st, 6:30-9pm
Location: Fort Collins Museum of Discovery
408 Mason Ct, Fort Collins, CO
Can't make it Thursday night? Join us Saturday 9/2 from 10 am to 1 pm at the museum to view local wildlife photos.
