Guns and Biodiversity: Threat or Conservation Tool?

November 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Guns and Biodiversity image

Guns and hunting have complex roles in biodiversity conservation. On the one hand, poaching and overharvesting of wildlife are clear threats to many species. On the other hand, guns may be important tools for eradication of invasives and wisely managed hunting can be an important tool for maintaining populations and garnering the support for wildlife conservation from segments of the population. Come join the Global Biodiversity Center and a panel of biologists, conservationists, and hunters to take part in a discussion that explores the complex relationship between guns, hunting, and biodiversity.
