    Living With Bears in Oregon - Discovering Wildlife Lecture Series

    1:38:49

    Most often black in color, North America's most common bear species may also be brown, cinnamon, or blond. Over 25,000 black bears make their home in Oregon and, although they range across much of our state, prefer forests, trails and streams. Black bear are good swimmers and climbers and are omnivorous, with a diet that includes berries, fruit, grasses and plants. Although they occasionally eat small mammals and insects, black bear are normally not active predators.

    Doug Cottam, District Wildlife Biologist with the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, talks about the life history of black bear and conflict with people. Doug has noted a significant reduction in bear problems along the mid-coast and will discuss why he thinks this has happened.

    Oregon Wildlife (Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation) was established in 1981 to receive money for and provide funding to beneficial fish, wildlife, and habitat projects throughout Oregon. Learn more and get involved!

    Discovering Wildlife Lecture Series - Bats of the Northwest

    1:28:20

    Feeling misunderstood, feared, and demonized? You're not alone. Bats have long been relegated in western culture to a position of distaste, persecution, and false accusations of hair entanglement. An unfortunate stereotype for an animal that in reality is shy, fascinating, and eats a lot of pesky insects. Presenter Pat Ormsbee sheds light on the dark and mysterious world of bats. What's it like to echolocate, be the only mammal with true flight, and be able to eat 30 - 50% of your own body weight in a night and still keep your battish figure? In addition to gems on the ecology and life history of bats, Pat shares conservation threats impacting bats.

    Pat Ormsbee is the recently retired bat specialist for the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management for Oregon and Washington. She has a bachelor's and master's degree from Oregon State University and was one of the first researchers in the Pacific Northwest to glue little radio transmitters on bats to find out where they roosted during the day. She has worked with bats for over twenty years and developed and orchestrated a long term monitoring program for bats across the Pacific Northwest known as The Bat Grid. Currently, Pat is working with colleagues to publish results from The Bat Grid monitoring project, and to develop a national bat monitoring program.

    Brave New Ocean - a lecture on our changing sea-life by marine ecologist Jeremy Jackson

    1:19:30

    In September 2009, Professor Jeremy Jackson from the prestigious Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California, delivered his Brave New Ocean lecture at an event hosted by the Ulster Wildlife Trust.

    Jacksons talk has profound messages about what is happening in the worlds oceans and seas as a consequence of human impacts such as pollution, habitat loss, over-fishing and climate change.

    He describes how once productive and complex marine ecosystems are being pushed beyond the brink, into simplistic ecosystems dominated by jellyfish and microbes - a transformation he has dubbed as the rise of slime. Jackson examines crucial questions about this Brave New Ocean, including what can be done to halt and reverse these current trends.

    The main lecture is 50 minutes long plus a 30 minute Q&A session at the end.

    Biodiversity conservation

    8:17

    Biodiversity conservation- This lecture explains about the conservation of biodiversity.Conservation is the defense, maintenance, management, or restoration of wildlife and traditional assets akin to forests and water. Via the conservation of biodiversity the survival of many species and habitats which might be threatened due to human events will also be ensured. Other explanations for conserving biodiversity incorporate securing useful typical resources for future generations and protecting the health of eco-system features.
    Conservation can commonly be divided into two types:

    In-situ: Conservation of habitats, species and ecosystems the place they naturally occur. This is in-situ conservation and the typical tactics and interplay are conserved as good as the elements of biodiversity.

    Ex-situ: The conservation of elements of biodiversity out of the context of their normal habitats is known as ex-situ conservation. Zoos, botanical gardens and seed banks are all illustration of ex-situ conservation.

    In-situ conservation shouldn't be normally possible as habitats will have been degraded and there is also competition for land because of this species have got to be removed from the field to save them
    Threatened Species

    Over the last 200 years many species have turn out to be extinct and the extinction price is on the develop because of the have an impact on of human pastime. The fame of species has been assessed on a global scale by means of the sector Conservation Union. Taxa that are dealing with a excessive chance of worldwide extinction are catalogued and highlighted within the IUCN purple record of Threatened Species.
    Threatened Habitats

    Habitat destruction comes in many forms from clear felling of forests to easy alterations in farming practices that fluctuate the total surrounding habitat. If a habitat is degraded or disappears a species may additionally become threatened. The united kingdom is in chance of losing various habitats starting from lowland calcareous grassland to mudflats and wet woodland.

    Wildlife Protection Act, 1972

    4:46

    The Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 is an Act of the Parliament of India enacted for protection of plants and animal species. Before 1972, India only had five designated national parks. Among other reforms, the Act established schedules of protected plant and animal species; hunting or harvesting these species was largely outlawed.
    The Act provides for the protection of wild animals, birds and plants; and for matters connected therewith or ancillary or incidental thereto. It extends to the whole of India, except the State of Jammu and Kashmir which has its own wildlife act. It has six schedules which give varying degrees of protection. Schedule I and part II of Schedule II provide absolute protection - offences under these are prescribed the highest penalties. Species listed in Schedule III and Schedule IV are also protected, but the penalties are much lower. Schedule V includes the animals which may be hunted. The plants in Schedule VI are prohibited from cultivation and planting. The hunting to the Enforcement authorities have the power to compound offences under this Schedule (i.e. they impose fines on the offenders). Up to April 2010 there have been 16 convictions under this act relating to the death of tigers.

    “Dire Predictions: Understanding Climate Change” – the Earth101 lecture

    35:37

    This lecture will begin with a review of the now-solid evidence for a human influence on the climate of recent decades. Such evidence includes instrumental measurements available for the past two centuries, paleoclimate observations spanning more than a millennium, and comparisons of the predictions from computer models with observed patterns of climate change. The lecture will then address future likely impacts of human-induced climate change including possible influences on sea level rise, severe weather, and water supply. The lecture will conclude with a discussion of solutions to the climate change problem. (Note: There is a small problem with the lights in the first three minutes).

    Michael E. Mann is Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University, with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI). He is also director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center (ESSC).

    Joe Brandl has worked for years honing his expertise of primitive bushcraft skills. His
    many years as a Boy Scout leader, vast experience as a hunter and wilderness adventurer, and his expertise in tanning animal hides have transformed him into a warehouse of knowledge and skills. In 1988, he began to operate a small tannery at the feet of the Wind River Range in Dubois, Wyoming. Since then, Absaroka Western Designs and Tannery has grown into a large tannery facility and showroom, producing western décor for homes, lodges, and businesses.

    His love for the outdoors guided him to attend the University of Nebraska where he obtained a B.S. in Natural Resources and Wildlife Management. Joe's expertise also led him to be the oldest participant to survive the 21-day challenge on Discovery Channel's Naked and Afraid.

    How to green the worlds deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory

    22:20

    Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert, begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

    Extinct species and endangered species

    12:14

    This lecture explains about the Extinct species and endangered species in india and how we evaluate endangered species and extinct species. An Endangered (EN) species is a species which has been categorized by way of the worldwide Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) purple record as more likely to emerge as extinct. Endangered is the second most severe conservation reputation for wild populations within the IUCN's schema after seriously Endangered (CR).

    In 2012, the IUCN purple record featured 3079 animal and 2655 plant species as Endangered (EN) international. The figures for 1998 were, respectively, 1102 and 1197.[citation needed]

    Many countries have laws that guard conservation-reliant species: for example, forbidding hunting, limiting land progress or developing preserves. Populace numbers, traits and species' conservation fame may also be discovered within the lists of organisms by means of populace.

    Caroline McCracken-Flesher at Saturday U: Jekyll and Hyde: Science and Scandal

    57:27

    Jekyll and Hyde: Science and Scandal, Caroline McCracken-Flesher, Department of English chair and professor. Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, could easily be re-titled Mr. Jekyll and Dr. Hyde. A widely-published specialist in 19th century British literature, McCracken-Flesher shows how Hyde reveals the dark side of 19th century doctors, linking medicine and murder, drugs and dreadful deeds. By delving into medical history, modern brain theory, pharmacology and 19th century scandals -- from murderous dentists to a notorious dissectionist -- discover how Stevenson's universally popular tale reflects contemporary and evolving, societal beliefs about medicine and drugs.
    McCracken-Flesher's recent books include The Doctor Dissected: A Cultural Autopsy of the Burke and Hare Murders (Oxford 2012), Possible Scotlands: Walter Scott and the Story of Tomorrow (Oxford, 2005) and the edited volumes Scotland As Science Fiction (Bucknell, 2011) and Culture, Nation and the New Scottish Parliament (Bucknell, 2007).
    A half-day of college classes and discussion began with refreshments at the National Museum of Wildlife Art Cook Auditorium in Jackson, WY.
    Three representatives from UW presented lectures, followed with a free lunch and a question and answer session.
    Saturday U is a collaborative program that connects popular UW professors with life-long learners in Jackson Hole. Offered three times a year, Saturday U is sponsored by the university, the UW Foundation and Wyoming Humanities Council and presented by Central Wyoming College (CWC), the National Museum of Wildlife Art and Teton County Library Foundation.

    23. Renewable Energy Policies

    49:34

    Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255)

    The lecture discusses the various factors affecting the expansion of the U.S. renewable energy portfolio, as well as the importance of energy efficiency and changes to current consumption. As a case study, Professor Wargo discusses the nine-year effort to create Cape Wind, a wind farm off the coast of Massachusetts. The project has faced opposition for a number of reasons, including noise and disruption of use of private property. The lecture ties the development of more renewable energy options to issues of property rights and discusses ways to overcome challenges in siting, in noise pollution, and in the impacts on wildlife (i.e. avian mortality as a result of wind farms).
