Shaye WolfDr. Shaye Wolf, 2000 Switzer Fellow and Climate
Science Director for the Center for Biological Diversity in San Francisco, CA, will present her work on climate
change and endangered species
.  With colleagues at the Center for
Biological Diversity, Dr. Wolf has focused on protecting species threatened by
climate change, using the Endangered Species Act (ESA).  She has written
scientific petitions to protect climate-threatened wildlife under the ESA, including the Pacific walrus and
ice seals in the Arctic, the American pika and San Bernardino flying squirrel on mountaintops,
and 83 coral species in the oceans. Her work has received media attention
from the New York Times, Associated Press, CNN, BBC, and other news
outlets. Dr. Wolf will talk about the benefits that ESA protection can provide to climate
change-threatened species, and she will recount the successes and setbacks she
has encountered in applying these tools.

This webinar will be of interest to conservation
biologists, wildlife biologists, climate change scientists, activists, and
policy professionals,
but all are welcome and encouraged to join.
