Alan Rabinowitz: "Saving the World's Big Cats for the Future"
A profound stutter left Alan Rabinowitz virtually unable to communicate as a child, and to prefer animals to people. Now CEO of the global wild cat conservation group Panthera, he has extraordinary insight into both wildlife and the human condition. Called the “Indiana Jones of Wildlife Ecology” by Time magazine, Rabinowitz holds a doctorate in the field and has dedicated his life to preserving wild habitats and securing homes for endangered mammals. His work with heads of state helped establish the world's first jaguar preserve in Belize, the world's largest tiger reserve in Myanmar, and the Jaguar Corridor from Mexico to Argentina. In this lecture, sponsored by the Biology Department's senior capstone series, the Speaker's Bureau, and Animal Alliance, Rabinowitz will discuss his remarkable career and explain why it’s essential to save wildlife.
