Lectures & Classes 

Holistic Conservation Lecture
Brian Badger, Director of Conservation and Outreach at the Cheetah Conservation Fund, will deliver a lecture on holistic conservation, an approach that considers the role of communities, history, economies and education in species conservation. Though Brian’s focus is the cheetah, an animal that we do not have here in North Texas, his aim is to educate the public about an approach to conservation that can be applied anywhere.

Described by his audiences as a passionate, fun, and humorous speaker, Brian is sure to enliven your night and bring a new perspective to your understanding of conservation. Read more about Brian here.
