Speaking in Calgary

I really love speaking at the various functions every year.
I have been invited to speak about Predator Friendly Ranching at Calgary's "Celebration of Wildlife". Here  are the details:

"A Celebration of Wildlife"

University of Calgary
Senate Room, Hotel Alma
April 12th, 2014
1:00pm till 5:00pm

Wolves, bears, coyotes and more! Join us to learn from Alberta's top wildlife experts, including internationally acclaimed Charlie Russell, who stars in the documentary "Bear Man of Kamchatka"!

In addition to compelling lectures, artwork will be auctioned from some of Canada's leading wildlife photographers including John E Marriott, Jason Bantle and photographer Kerri Martin!

This uplifting event is an opportunity for people to come together to share their sense of wonderment of the beautiful Canadian wildlife and to explore the issues facing them today. Climate change, habitat loss, and lethal solutions to human-wildlife conflicts threaten many species of animals across Canada. This event will bring together individuals and organizations together to raise compassionate awareness for the plight of Canada's wild animals. It aims to create lasting partnerships, and inspire the community to action for the animals.

If you are someone who has a love for wildlife and the environment, this is an event you will not want to miss. You will come away inspired and connected with like-minded individuals from across the province.

This event is ideal for government officials including provincial, regional and municipal staff, as well as First Nations, farmers and ranchers, wildlife rehabilitation groups, animal welfare groups, naturalist societies, conservation officers, academics and individual citizens who want to make a difference in their community by preserving their natural environment.

I am also so excited to hear and see the other speakers on this day,
