Wake Up with Wildlife Lectures
Lecture topics focus on local wildlife species and promote wildlife conservation by teaching the community about the beauty and value of our wildlife here in San Diego. Lectures take place the first Saturday of the month from 9:30-11:00am at our San Diego Campus.
Wake Up Wildlife classes are currently on hold, but will return soon - please check back.
Twice each year, in one of nature’s most amazing events, billions of birds make enormous and hazardous journeys from their breeding grounds to wintering areas. Some travel as much as 25,000 miles every year, from the high Arctic to the tip of South America and back. Of the more than 500 bird species found in San Diego, almost 2/3 of them migrate into or out of the area every spring and fall. Join avid birder Stan Walens, who has collected almost 40 years of data on seabird populations in San Diego, talk about how the fascinating process of migration works and the benefits and problems it presents.
Join Project Coyote Ranching with Wildlife Coordinator, Keli Hendricks, for a lively presentation about coexisting with coyotes. Topics will include coyote safety, education, and programs and resources available to help residents and communities better understand and coexist with our wild neighbors.
Join us as we learn about the endangered Peninsular Pronghorn Antelope in Baja and what conservation efforts San Diego Zoo/Safari park are doing to help!
