Africa's Lion Stronghold: Ruaha National Park

We are delighted to welcome back Dr. Amy Dickman, Director of Ruaha Carnivore Project in Tanzania. She will share her experiences with Africa's largest population of lions and collaborating with the people who live among them to insure a better future for both people and wildlife. Since its founding in 2009, the project has rapidly generated genuine progress in saving lions. Come hear what is possible when people work together - and what's needed next.

Gather by the lions for an informal mixer from 6 to 7 p.m. in the gardens followed by her presentation and Q&A in the Safari Canyon open-air theater until 8 p.m. Please dress comfortably for this evening outdoors. RSVP TODAY.
Cost: General Public: $10 (pay at door)  | Naples Zoo Members: Free
