7:30 PM - 8:30 PM (ET)
Palamountain Hall Gannett Auditorium
This lecture has been moved to Gannett Auditorium.
Rod Coronado, ecoanarchist and environmental activist, will give a talk entitled "A Voice in the Wild: Citizen Action to Save the Wolf... Again".
Rod Coronado is building a grassroots campaign against the recreational hunting of wolves and the USDA's Wildlife Services program which is responsible for eradicating literally hundreds of thousands of predators annually with traps, poisons and aerial gunning.
Coronado explains his own path towards protecting American predators with organizations such as Earth First! and describes how those efforts led to some change, but also legal consequences that resulted in his imprisonment. As a veteran of the environmental movement for over 30 years, Coronado explains how we must now move forward to create campaigns that involve participating in the same public process that is used to develop public policies towards wildlife.
This event is open to the public.
