Bill will speak on: Roar of the Monarch Butterfly. The story covers the unique migration of the monarch butterfly and the challenges for their survival. The migratory race of the monarch butterfly was recently listed as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Of the many challenges facing the monarch butterfly, climate change may be the most significant. We will also hear about his new book!
Bill Toone is the Founder of ECOLIFE Conservation. He holds a Master’s Degree in Biology from University of California. Toone became the youngest Curator of Birds for the Zoological Society of San Diego at the age of 28.
In 1983 he and Noel Snyder led the recovery team for the world-renowned, federally mandated California Condor Recovery Team retrieving the first wild California condor egg and safely transported it to the San Diego Zoo; later to be hatched in the zoo. He oversaw the care and nurture of this first chick and many that followed. Because of these events, Bill Toone, along with Betty Jo Williams (President of the Board) and Arthur Risser were bestowed with the nation’s highest award in conservation from the Secretary of the Interior.
There will be time for questions from the audience.
