Oakland, CA (September 9, 2015) – International environmental consulting firm Marstel-Day announced that the award-winning Oakland Zoo will host the firm’s Stand With Wildlife Campaign event on Thursday, September 17 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time (2 p.m. Eastern Time).
Oakland Zoo Conservation Director Amy Gotliffe will speak about the human-wildlife interface, focusing on the Zoo’s novel work in resolving conflict between people and mountain lions and on how individuals can make a more positive contribution to sustaining wildlife. The presentation will be streamed live from the Marstel-Day website.
Marstel-Day’s 2015 Stand With Wildlife Campaign was launched by Marstel-Day President and CEO Rebecca R. Rubin to highlight the challenges facing wildlife and the ways that individuals and groups can support wildlife, and especially wildlife threatened by loss or fragmentation of habitat, development, and/or poaching.
The Oakland Zoo is home to more than 600 native and exotic animals and is known for its natural habitat, educational and children’s programs, and worldwide conservation efforts, including its BioDiversity Center. Gotliffe coordinates the Zoo’s on-site sustainability efforts and its international, national, and local conservation efforts, including expeditions.
