Nov 2: ‘Conflict or Collaboration:Can Humans & Animals Coexist?’ Banff Festival Panel with Panthera Media Director Steve Winter


Today, we hear increasing news of human and animal encounters in mountain communities in the press. Are humans and animals competing for the same land and how can we mitigate human-wildlife conflict? What do people living next to wildlife need to know?

Join Panthera’s Media Director, Steve Winter, and other speakers on Saturday, November 2nd, at 11:00am, for a special panel on ‘Conflict or Collaboration: Can Humans & Animals Coexist?’ at Canada’s Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. Along with Winter, this panel of experts will include Karsten Heuer, President, Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative; and Steve Michel, Human Wildlife Conflict Specialist, Parks Canada. The event will be moderated by Mike Gibeau, Conservation Coordinator – SW Alberta, Nature Conservancy of Canada and followed by a stroll among Steve Winter’s Big Cats exhibit.
