Life in the outdoors

The Wildlife Conservation Society gathered club members to discuss upcoming events and opportunities on Oct. 8. 

The meeting highlighted a short video examining wolves and their influence on river ecosystems – they’re responsible for killing deer, which reduces the consumption of vegetation.

The presence of the wolf species rebuilds habitats, making space for niches that attract other animals, stabilizing rivers, banks and regenerating forests. 

Attendees and club members also watched a short film discussing whales and their role in climate, reducing carbon and providing oxygen. 

Connor Quiroz, the club’s Inter-Club Council Representative, explained the importance of education surrounding wildlife.

“We need to try and bring populations back with selective breeding,” Quiroz said. “Educating people is important in today’s world of conservation.”

Wildlife Trivia Night is scheduled for Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. – providing an opportunity for attendees to test their knowledge of different species and their environments. 

To support the club, check out the Chipotle Fundraiser on Oct. 30 from 4 to 8 p.m.  

For those looking to dive into the marine side of wildlife, kayaking in Elkhorn Slough is on Friday, Nov. 12. 

Join The Wildlife Conservation Society on MyRaft to sign up for upcoming events.
