October Program: Dr. Ryan Klataske

October 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dr. Ryan Klataske will present about his research in southern Africa and its relevance to conservation issues and efforts in the Great Plains.
African wildlife face an array of formidable threats, from habitat loss and fragmentation to human-wildlife conflict and illegal trafficking. Similar threats to wildlife exist around the world. Fortunately, in southern Africa, groups of people are working together to manage and conserve wildlife and natural resources in innovative ways. For the past decade, anthropologist Dr. Ryan Klataske has studied wildlife management and conservation in Namibia, documenting these important efforts and the intersecting issues of ranching, race, land, and livelihoods. This talk will provide a broad, publicly accessible introduction to Namibia, including its people, history, wildlife, and the lessons it can teach us about conservation and community in the Great Plains. Vivid photography will compliment stories about living and working for over a year with a wide variety of people including landowners, farmworkers, resettlement farmers, indigenous people, hunters and tourists, government officials, and representatives of various NGOs.
The Wichita Audubon Program Series is FREE. Refreshments follow the program.
Dr. Ryan Klataske is a cultural anthropologist and conservationist. He teaches anthropology at Kansas State University and works for Audubon of Kansas.
