193 Thompson Road, Oswego, NY 13126 #RCAReflections
Free Event

RCA Reflections are invited talks about ecology and the environment, free and open to all to join. This talk will be delivered in a hybrid format: in-person at Rice Creek Field Station or via Zoom (see Dial-In Instructions below).


Talk Description

Large mammalian carnivores play many critical ecological roles (ecological services) — everything from predation on injured/sick individual prey to wildlife ecotourism. This talk will cover these roles, the general public's misconceptions about large mammalian carnivores, and key takeaway messages regarding common large mammalian carnivore conservation issues. Richly illustrated with wildlife photos, this non-technical talk is designed for a public audience.




Dr. Steve Sheffield is a Professor in the Natural Resources Department at Bowie State University in Maryland. He is an alumnus of the Zoology program at SUNY Oswego and spent time at Rice Creek Field Station during his time at Oswego.



Free parking is available by the field station building.
