Join Climate Action Evanston's Natural Habitat Evanston Program and Rotary International via Zoom as Seth Magle, Director of the Urban Wildlife Institute at the Lincoln Park Zoo, discusses what wildlife wanders, forages and hunts in our urban ecosystem. Some species are new arrivals, and others have been here all along, thank you. Using Lincoln Park Zoo’s diverse scientific specialties, the Urban Wildlife Institute studies the interaction between metropolitan development and nature. Learn about how we can minimize human-wildlife conflict and sustain biodiversity. Hear about how the Urban Wildlife Institute aims for Chicago to become a model for urban areas struggling with wildlife relocation, rehabilitation, disease, and conflicts, and how they have created a scientific model for urban wildlife biology now followed by more than fifty other cities worldwide.
