FAS - Ecological Effects of Wolves in WA.
7:00 PM
ZOOM presentation
Flathead Audubon Presents a Program on the Ecological Effects of Recognizing Wolves in the State of Washington.

Aaron Wirsing will be the featured speaker at the Monday, December 13 virtual meeting of the Flathead Audubon Society at 7 PM. Aaron and his graduate students are interested in the impacts large predators have on prey populations and ecosystems. His talk will focus on the ecological effects of gray wolf recolonization in Washington, highlighting projects that began in 2011 exploring how the renewed presence of wolves in this state is shaping deer behavior and the behavior of other large carnivores such as cougars. The study also addressed how prey species balance the risks posed by wolves and human hunters. (See below for how to join the Zoom meeting.)

Aaron received his undergraduate degree from Bowdoin College and graduate degrees from the University of Idaho (MS) and Simon Fraser University (PhD, in Vancouver, BC Canada). Aaron is currently a Professor of Wildlife Science in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington, in Seattle, where he also heads the Predator Ecology Lab (www.predatorecology.com).
