Returning the Wild to the Wilderness: Loss, Legacy, and New Opportunity

(11am-12pm CT, 10am-11am MT, 9am-10am PT)

Gone for 120 years, the American marten was a common native species to Pennsylvania. This presentation will take a look at what happened to the marten and other species that were extirpated within the state, then focus on determining the feasibility of a reintroduction and what that process looks like, both theoretically and practically.
