Badgers, otters, minks and weasels…besides being both adorable and ferocious, what do they all have in common? They all belong to a stellar but stinky group of mammals known as “Mustelids”. Join us nature nerds as we chat with zoologist Shaun Dunn, and learn more about the incredible adaptations and unique abilities of mustelids, and which ones we might see right here in Nebraska.
Registration is required to attend: Register Here
Remember- when registering you can submit your questions for our experts and, we’ll do our best to get those questions answered, and more, on the night of the event.
Shaun Dunn is the Natural Heritage Zoologist for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and frequently works with mammals, insects, reptiles, and amphibians.
Nebraska Nature Nerd Night is a free, virtual series for curious adults, exploring the secrets and science of nature in Nebraska through storytelling and conversation. Join hosts and science educators from Nebraska Game & Parks at 7pm Central on the third Tuesday of every month, as we interview experts in the field about a variety of fascinating topics; from bees, to birds, fossils, to parasites! We’ll dive deeper into the remarkable world of nature found in Nebraska by having lively conversations with real scientists, and by sharing and asking your questions with the experts.
Can’t attend a live event? Don’t worry, we have you covered. We will record each event and place it on our Game and Parks Education YouTube Channel the following day.
