An Indomitable Beast with Alan Rabinowitz
September 17, 2014
In An Indomitable Beast: The Remarkable Journey of the Jaguar, big-cat expert Alan Rabinowitz shares his own personal journey to conserve a species that, despite its past resilience, is now on a slide toward extinction. In a mix of personal discovery and scientific inquiry, this lecture will go deep into the realm of the jaguar, offering fascinating accounts from the field and beyond. Not only about jaguars, but also about tenacity and survival, Rabinowitz reveals better strategies for saving other species and also how to save ourselves when faced with immediate and long-term catastrophic changes to our environment.
This lecture will be followed by a book signing.
