Conservation Lecture: Saving Madagascar's Top Predator

03/07/2019, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens map

Description:

Dr. Luke Dollar, Conservation Scientist and National Geographic Explorer, will take you on journey through his 20+ years of research on fosas (formerly spelled fossa). This rare, carnivorous predator is native to the island of Madagascar. Luke also visits Naples each year to speak to over 3,000 fourth grade students about science as part of Naples Zoo's educational collaboration with Collier County Public Schools. Luke has personally visited all 30 Collier County elementary schools.

For this special evening, we’ll gather at the fosa exhibit to see one of the fosas that was born at Naples Zoo during an informal mixer from 6 to 7 p.m. when you can learn how we care for the fosa at the Zoo. Afterwards, Luke will present in the Safari Canyon open-air theater until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.
