Upcoming Speaker Series
Tico McNutt – African Painted Dogs & the Botswana Predator Trust
Tico McNutt PhD, Founder and Director
The Research and Conservation Team at Botswana Predator Conservation Trust
We invite you to join the Endangered Wolf Center for an evening with Tico McNutt, (PhD), Founder and Director of the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust (www.bpctrust.org). As part of our Educational Speakers Series, Tico will talk about his work in the conservation of African Painted Dogs. He began his pioneering conservation work with African wild dogs in the Okavango Delta in 1989 as a graduate student at the University of California, Davis. During the past 26 years, working in Botswana with graduate students, local staff and trainees, Tico has charted the individual life histories of hundreds of wild dogs spanning eight generations.
After years of research on this previously misunderstood and persecuted species, the painted dog is now among those most sought after by African wildlife tourists. Tico supervises a growing team of researchers and students from around the world to fulfill BPCT’s broader mission: the conservation of all African large carnivore species.
All proceeds from this Speaker Series will benefit the conservation of endangered animals – a portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust.
