Managing Wildlife by Knowledge Rather than Opinion

Owning a wrench does not make a person a plumber, and enjoying the outdoors does not qualify a person to manage ecosystems and their dependent wildlife.  Credentials for serving on the wildlife commission must be up-dated to require commissioners possess actual biological and ecological knowledge.

Welcome to a 3-part series "A Naturalist's To-Do List," with Kevin Cook. Starting in October he will present one nature-related or wildlife-specific problem each month and conclude by presenting a proposal for
solving that problem. Cook taught seminars at Rocky Mountain National Park, the Rocky Mountain Nature Association and was with the Rocky Mountain Conservancy for about 27 years. He has been presenting nature programs since 1993. "As we continue learning, we acquire new information that collectively expands our knowledge
about Life on Earth. What we know today vastly out-measures what we knew a generation ago. Knowledge becomes the only meaningful, productive way for addressing problems that arise from confrontations between Humanity and the rest of Life. Problems present the option for any of four different reactions: ignore them; acknowledge them; talk about them; or solve them." 

The Nov. 8th program is "A Different Way to Hug a Tree," and Dec. 6th's program is "Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty! Where Are You?"
