Virtual Wednesday Nite @ The Lab

“Wolf Policy and its Effects on Illegal Killing, Human Tolerance, and Recovery”, Adrian Treves, Nelson Institute

Event Details

Date
Wednesday, March 3, 2021
Time
7-8:15 p.m.
Location
Description
Reporting new evidence from Wisconsin’s wolves, red wolves and Mexican gray wolves, Dr. Treves presents the state of the science on endangered wolf policy. Four lines of evidence show that ‘blood does not buy goodwill’. Legalizing wolf-killing does not raise tolerance for wolves, does not reduce poaching, and slows population growth more than expected from legal mortality. The best available science shows that cryptic poaching and concealment of evidence increases instead.
