Celebrating International Zebra Day

With Dr. Tim Davenport, WCS Director of Species Conservation & Science

Africa’s flagship species—elephants, lions, primates, zebra, cheetahs—are some of the most charismatic megafauna on earth. Our guest Dr. Tim Davenport, WCS Director of Species Conservation & Science (Africa), has worked on conservation projects for many of these species ranging from designating new reserves on behalf of species of monkey he discovered to documenting and describing all wildlife corridors in Tanzania. Recently, his team successfully relocated zebra to Kitulo National Park to restore its natural ecology. In celebration of International Zebra Day, join this discussion and help us address charismatic species and species conservation, and learn “What it is and why it ‘works.’


NOT ALL SCIENTISTS WEAR LAB COATS
Conservation issues remain a critical emphasis in the STEM field. Facing issues such as illegal wildlife trafficking, the climate crisis, plastics pollution, and zoonotic disease spread, WCS professionals are leading the way in innovative and exciting ways to identify solutions. Join us for our newest interactive series exploring STEM careers. In each session, you’ll learn about a different conservation issue, meet a WCS staff member actively working on solutions, and discover how their unique pathway to a STEM career was influenced by their identity.
