Enforcement talk kicks off Wildlife Wednesdays season

Enforcement talk kicks off Wildlife Wednesdays season

The monthly speaker series Wildlife Wednesdays starts today with a discussion of the role of Alaska State Wildlife Troopers in enforcing wildlife management law.

Wildlife Trooper Matthew Dobson will give a talk at the University of Alaska Southeast’s Egan Lecture Hall over the role of troopers in wildlife management. The hourlong free talk starts at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Dobson’s talk kicks off the Wildlife Wednesday season. On the first Wednesday of every month from October to March, environmental nonprofit advocacy group Alaska Wildlife Alliance hosts Wildlife Wednesdays.

This year’s slate of lectures includes presentations about skulls and bones (Nov. 7, Mary Wilson and Kathy Hocker); Carinvore conservation (Dec. 5, Cristina Eisenberg); National Science Foundation, U.S. Antarctic progress and Weddell seals (Jan. 2, Rachel Berngartt); Salmon-supported bears, seed dispersal and small mammals (Feb. 6, Yasaman Shakeri); and carnivore ecology in the sub-Arctic (March 6, Kaija Klauder).
