We live in the Sonoran Desert, surrounded by a biologically diverse area where interactions with wildlife is inevitable. That’s one of the reasons that the desert is a fun and interesting place to live. Sometimes however, wildlife encounters involve conflict that can result in damage to homes and gardens and of course, involve injuries to humans, pets, and wildlife itself.

On Thursday, Nov. 12 at 3 p.m., Ranch Talks will host a Zoom presentation by volunteer docent, Bob Elder. During his talk he will emphasize ways to minimize and avoid potentially adverse encounters with urban wildlife.

Bob is a volunteer docent at the Arizona Sonora Desert museum. His principal responsibilities at the museum include conducting tours and conducting interpretive programs. He received a Ph.D. in Zoology and Physiology from the University of Wyoming and has over 40 years of professional experience in environmental science. He has worked for the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, for the State of Wyoming, and for many environmental consulting companies.
