Lions, tigers, wolves, wild dogs and other charismatic carnivores are often depicted as being on the brink of extinction. Dr. Joshua Ginsberg of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies paints a more complicated picture. In his upcoming lecture at the Cary Institute in Millbrook, Dr. Ginsberg will discuss how, over the last few decades, global populations of many large carnivores have either stabilized or have started to recover. The audience will learn which animals are on the rebound and what their improvement tells us about the future of wildlife conservation.

This event takes place on Friday, February 19 at 7 p.m. The Cary Institute is located at 2801 Sharon Turnpike in Millbrook. For more information, call (845) 677-7600, extension 121, or visit www.caryinstitute.org.
