  • Willamette Valley Bird Symposium January 19

2018 - 2019 Speaker Schedule

  • Dr. Bill Ripple
    January 17
    Wolves, the World’s Wildlife, and a Warning to Humanity

    Dr. William J. Ripple will present his work on how the far-reaching impacts of wolves are affecting the ecosystem in Yellowstone National Park. Ripple will illustrate how he transitioned from Yellowstone to other national parks in western North America and beyond to demonstrate both the benefits of wild large predators and the costs of their demise. He will also discuss the conservation status and trends of the world’s large vertebrate wildlife. He will disclose how his conservation research and general concern about the global environment and climate change led him to publish the letter “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice.” As a check-up for the planet, this letter has reached millions of people and is one of the most widely discussed and endorsed scientific articles of recent times. His talk will be full of illustrated stories about his 20-year journey from doing ecological research to being an advocate for science and the environment. He will provide suggestions for sustainability on planet Earth. Bill is a distinguished professor of ecology in the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University where he serves as the Director of the Global Trophic Cascades Program where he studies the ecological effects of large predators. His latest research involves studying the conservation of all vertebrate wildlife, especially megafauna (large carnivores and herbivores) around the world. To continue with the global environmental concerns of the Scientists’ Warning, he has recently formed and now manages the “Alliance of World Scientists” which includes more than 14,000 scientists from many different countries
