Dr. Amy Dickman, Director of Ruaha Carnivore Project in Tanzania, will share her experiences with Africa's largest population of lions and collaborating with the people who live among them to insure a better future for both people and wildlife. Since its founding in 2009, the project has rapidly generated genuine progress in saving lions. Come hear what is possible when people work together.
Gather by the lions for an informal mixer from 6 to 7 p.m. in the gardens followed by her presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.
The $10 general admission fee is paid by cash or credit card at the Naples Zoo ticket box the night of the event.
Anyone included in your membership that enters the zoo at no charge is also welcomed free to these events including the extra guests that are part of Conservator and Curator levels. If you have neighbors or friends that would like to attend, they can join you by paying the nominal $10 general admission fee.
These are casual events held outdoors. Dress comfortably to stand during the mingling time prior to the lecture start. And dress for the weather if it's cool as well.
Any age is welcome, but the Naples Zoo Conservation Lecture Series are directed at an adult audience. We leave the age requirements open as parents are the best judge of the maturity level of their child for events like these.
