  • Conservation Lecture: Saving Madagascar's Top Predator

    Mar 7th, 2019
    6:00pm - 8:00pm
    Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

    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.

  • Conservation Lecture: Cracking the Code: Finding Florida's Hidden Pythons

    Mar 21st, 2019
    6:00pm - 8:00pm
    Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

    The first wild Burmese python in Florida was documented in 1979. In the past decade, however, their numbers appear to have skyrocketed. The negative impact on native wildlife populations is just beginning to be understood. Worse yet, except when they're basking on roads or levees these giant snakes are notoriously difficult to find. 

    Join Ian Bartoszek, biologist at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, to hear what he's learned from challenging years of research on the pythons of Collier County and possible paths forward for residents and land managers in dealing with this new member of the ecosystem. Naples Zoo is one of the funders of this important research.

    Gather at the python exhibit for an informal mixer from 6 to 7 p.m. followed by his presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors.
