Chris ParisChris Parish – Condors, Raptors and Lead Ammunition

Thursday, March 5, 2020

4:00 PM & 7:00 PM

The Peregrine Fund’s mission is to conserve raptors, engage people and cultivate excellence. The organization has helped prevent the extinction of the California Condor, protect and conserve areas utilized by raptors, address threats facing raptor species, and inspire people to take action to change their habits, which will also help to protect raptors. Chris Parish, Director of Global Conservation for the Peregrine Fund, grew up in southern California, has served as a wildlife biologist and has been working on condor projects since 1997. Since 2000, he has been directing the condor project’s field effort for The Peregrine Fund. He comes to Blank Park Zoo’s Hope for the Wild Speaker Series with a wealth of knowledge regarding condors, raptors and lead ammunition. Join him on March 5, 2020.
