Lindsay Wildlife Experience Icons of Conservation Speaker Series

Imagine there's no ocean, it's easy if you try...This is your chance to learn from an expert how plastics and other pollutants are slowly destroying our oceans. Join Lindsay Wildlife Experience and world-renowned ocean ambassador and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Dr. Sylvia Earle, as she discusses threats to our oceans, why it matters, and what you can do to help. 

Earle is one of eight awe-inspiring speakers that are part of the Conservation Icons series that aims to educate, entertain and inspire change! From wolves, sharks and golden eagles to the human effects on habitat and climate change, these speakers will touch on the need for conservation and action to save our planet. 

"The goal is to help everyone understand and learn what they can do to improve conditions for wildlife and habitats in which they live," said Lindsay’s Executive Director Dr. Cheryl McCormick. “These speakers are an inspiring reminder of why the human connection to wildlife is so vitally linked to our own survival as a species—heroes who defy overwhelming odds and who are proof that one individual can affect ripples of long-lasting change,” said McCormick. “I guarantee you will leave each presentation, spirit soaring, brain engaged and mind inspired,” McCormick argues the need for action and strong conservation voices may be necessary now more than ever, with environmental protections taken for granted for years now under real threat.
