Nebraska Nature Nerd Night: Stories from the Field: Wildlife Trafficking in the Great Plains
September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Many of us might think of tigers, rhinos or elephants when we think about poaching. Unfortunately wildlife trafficking and wildlife crime occurs in more places than we’d like to think, including here in Nebraska. Join us nature nerds as we chat with conservation officers about this topic. We’ll hear their real stories from the field, and learn about their role in helping to protect our natural resources, and prevent wildlife crime.
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.
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.
