Southborough – Southborough native Rebecca Watters, an Algonquin Regional High School graduate, will share her experiences doing research, both in the United States and Mongolia, on the elusive wolverine. The talk will be held Thursday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m., at the Southborough Community House, 28 Main St.
Watters will share her experiences as part of a five-person team on a National Geographic-sponsored research project that cross country skied through the remote Darhad region of Mongolia. The talk will explore the biology and ecology of wolverines, the critical questions of how to conserve climate sensitive wildlife, the adventures on skis, foot, and horseback that go with research efforts on a high-elevation species on two continents, and the what we can learn from scientific and conservation dialogue across cultures.
The presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, visit http://solf.org/. The program is presented by the Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF) with the support of a grant from the Southborough Community Fund.
