Animals of the North: What Will Global Climate Change Mean for Them

White Wolf

White Wolf

When: Feb. 22 (Wednesday); 7 pm

Where: Cavendish Town Elementary School

Description:  Sue Morse of Keeping Track led a fascinating talk in Proctorsville last year on cougars returning to Vermont. If you heard that presentation you know that she is an incredibly knowledgeable speaker and naturalist. She will return to the elementary school in Proctorsville on Wednesday, February 22nd at 7:00 p.m. to present a talk entitled, “Animals of The North – What Will Global Climate Change Mean for Them?” The program is co-sponsored by the Grafton Nature Museum and the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association.

Her program is designed to educate audiences about ways in which northern wildlife species are already being affected by climate change, with more serious challenges ahead. Canada lynx, moose, American marten, caribou, polar bear, arctic fox and arctic marine mammals and waterfowl are some of the species covered in this stunningly beautiful show. Sue promises not to overwhelm the audience with bad news. Instead, her program will devote equal time sharing remarkable images and stories about plants and animals in their northern habitats - - all in the spirit of Jane Goodall’s “reason for hope.” The intent is to inspire attendees, young and old alike, to join in the vital crusade to change our fossil fuel-burning ways, conserve natural resources and share a healthy planet with all that lives.

Sue Morse is a nationally recognized naturalist and habitat specialist with forty years of experience tracking and monitoring wildlife uses of habitat throughout North America. 

Ms. Morse founded a non-profit organization called Keeping Track® in 1994, out of her concern that development in all its forms often unwittingly harms, isolates and even eliminates habitat critical to local biodiversity and broad-scale ecological health. More than 40,000 acres of land in 12 states and Quebec have been conserved on the basis of evidence gathered by Keeping Track teams.

Suggested Donation $5 for adults and $2 for children.
