Legally Extinct- Why Our Wildlife Laws Aren't Enough

Event Description

Online registration for this CLE is closed, e-mail ylansiquot@mnbars.orgto register.

In this talk naturalist, author and overpopulation activist Dr. Karen I. Shragg will help us take a deeper look into the laws that are designed to protect wildlife but are failing overall because they do not address population growth and the way it increases demand for wildlife habitat. Wildlife is already in tremendous danger due to the negative effects of climate change, add to this the way we are sprawling over the landscape and their future, tied with ours is grim. We still have the power, however, to focus on laws that will offer them more protection in the US. Join in this provocative discussion which promises to offer much food for thought.
