As part of the IoE Distinguished Lecturer Series, Dr. Robert Garrott will give a talk titled "Wild Horses in the West: Hard Choices for Animals, Rangelands, and Tax Payers" on Wednesday, January 17 at 7pm in SUB Ballroom B. His lecture will describe the origins of wild horses in North America, public policy regarding wild horse management on western rangelands, wild horse population ecology, and the current status of wild horse populations and management. Wild horse policy and management are at a critical crossroad and decisions made in the next few years will have fundamental impacts on horses and all natural resources on rangelands occupied by horses, as well as local communities.
Dr. Robert Garrott is Director of the Fish and Wildlife Ecology and Management Program within the Ecology Department. He has been involved with wild horse ecology and management for 30 years and recently served on the National Research Council committee of scientific experts charged with reviewing the state of knowledge regarding wild horse ecology and management.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served prior to the talk. Please bring a smartphone to the lecture if available to use in a lecture-related survey.
