Rippowam Cisqua School’s acclaimed Foundations of Education Series continues on Wednesday, November 14th at 7:00 p.m. with a visit from Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, CEO of Panthera, a non-profit organization that directs and implements effective conservation strategies for the world's largest and most endangered cats, including tigers, lions, jaguars, and snow leopards. Dr. Rabinowitz is one of the world's leading big cat experts, and has been called "The Indiana Jones of Wildlife Conservation" by Time magazine. He is the author of more than one hundred scientific and popular articles and six books. In 2008, Dr. Rabinowitz was a guest on The Colbert Report, where he discussed his organization's mission and his commitment to wildlife conservation.
Dr. Rabinowitz will speak about “Saving the World’s Big Cats: From Brooklyn to Burma, and Beyond.” He has traveled the globe to save these endangered animals, and his presentation will include a great slideshow with lots of amazing pictures of big cats from all over the world. Dr. Rabinowitz’s message is a powerful one—one that is appropriate for and will be compelling to parents and students alike. Parents are encouraged to bring their school-age children to the lecture, which promises to be an interesting and exciting exploration of wildlife conservation led by one of the world’s great experts.
