Description:

This Webinar was the next in a series hosted by the Conservation Finance Forum (with assistance from the Government Innovators Network), highlighting several topics of keen interest to the U.S. and international conservation communities.

Gary Tabor spoke about an initiative that aims to protect bear habitat in the subcontinental region stretching from Yellowstone to the Yukon. Philip Nyhus discussed a recent meeting hosted in St. Petersburg, Russia by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and the Government of the Russian Federation, where thirteen "tiger range" countries agreed on a cross-continental agenda for tiger conservation. Rob Lilieholm talked about Africa and computer models that forecast the future of such iconic open spaces as Nairobi National Park in Kenya, where lions and wildebeests roam freely.
