Event Details

In addition to providing Coachella Valley residents and visitors the opportunity to visit a world-class zoological park and botanical garden, The Living Desert supports and collaborates with conservation organizations throughout the world. We are excited to partner with the Zoo to present a fascinating talk by Mary Wykstra, Executive Director of Action for Cheetahs in Kenya. Mary’s presentation will focus on the ways in which the group’s work has become a model for success in carnivore conservation on a grass roots level over the past ten years – from cheetah monitoring to conflict mitigation to the use of scat detection dogs. Join us to learn more about how Action for Cheetahs in Kenya promotes the conservation of this beautiful species through research, awareness, and community participation.
