Highlighting the remarkable adaptations that help predators find and consume their prey, the presentation will engage participants with a vivid slide show and lively discussion. Chewonki’s presenter will use the lens of food webs and natural cycles to explore problems faced by predators in the world, including examples of their decline throughout history because of habitat loss and human interference. A discussion of current events will emphasize the importance of predators in maintaining the world’s ecological balance.
