Online – Environment Texas Wildlife Corridors Webinar
August 2, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Dear GEAA members and friends, I am delighted to share an invitation from GEAA member group, Environment Texas, to an informative webinar next Thursday, September 2nd at 2:00. Nature in Texas has been fragmented by roads, fences, and other development that creates hazards for wildlife. These barriers can set entire ecosystems off balance and leave vulnerable and endangered species more susceptible to other challenges such as disease and climate change. One solution to this problem: developing wildlife corridors to connect separated habitats and provide safe pathways for wildlife. Join Environment Texas and guests to discuss wildlife corridors already stretching across Texas, including the Neches River and Laguna Atascosa corridors and San Antonio’s new Tobin Land Bridge in Hardberger Park, as well as endangered species such as the ocelot which utilize them, and learn about legislation in Congress which would provide funding for wildlife corridors across the nation. Hear from guest speakers including: • Dr. Sharon Wilcox, Texas Representative of Defenders of Wildlife • Andy Jones, Senior Project Manager, Conservation Acquisition of the Conservation Fund • Jewell Lee Cozort, Park Naturalist, City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Brief presentations will be followed with a Q&A. Please RSVP here, and reach out to Seth Billingsly (email@example.com) you have any questions or comments. Have a wonderful weekend! Annalisa Peace View the email blast here for any questions!
