On Nov. 25 Dr Dave Prescott will be speaking on Species at Risk in Alberta: identification, management and outlook. This presentation is open to the public and will be at the Kerry Wood Nature Center in Red Deer.
Dr. Prescott will present a general overview of how species at risk are assessed and how recovery plans are set up. He will then give a description of the species at risk in Alberta: what they are , why they are "at risk" , what is being done to manage them , and their future outlook. His presentation will focus on the management of endangered and threatened species in the prairie and parkland regions of Alberta.
Dr. Dave Prescott has a PhD. in Wildlife Ecology from the University of Calgary. He has been involved in management of species at risk and other wildlife in Alberta with Alberta Fish and Wildlife and other agencies since 1994. He has been the Senior Species at Risk Biologist for the Prairies Area of Alberta Fish and Wildlife and Wildlife Division in Red Deer since 2000.
