Presentation: Stopping the Sixth Extinction

February 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

South Peel Naturalists’ Club Speaker Presentation: Stopping the Sixth Extinction: A Canadian Perspective on Wildlife Conservation

Halting this rapid loss of species is one of our planet’s greatest conservation challenges. We are currently witnessing what has been called the Sixth Extinction. Canadians  often think about the species extinction crisis as something that’s happening elsewhere. The plight of  elephants, tigers and gorillas is well known to many Canadians. We absolutely need to save these species, but  stopping the global extinction crisis needs to start at home. This presentation will explore the species we’ve  lost in Canada and what is driving their extinction. It will also examine the species that we’ve managed to pull  back from the edge of extinction and why their recovery should give hope to conservation.

Dan Kraus  is a Senior Conservation Biologist with the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC) national office. He is an expert on Canadian biodiversity, conservation and landscape ecology.
