Today: Dr. Alan Rabinowitz Lectures on ‘Saving the World’s Big Cats: From Brooklyn to Burma, and Beyond’

Panthera

Panthera’s CEO, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, will give a lecture on ‘Saving the World’s Big Cats: From Brooklyn to Burma, and Beyond’ for the Foundations of Education Series at the Rippowam Cisqua School in Mount Kisco, NY at 7:00pm today, Wednesday, November 14th. Join us to learn about Dr. Rabinowitz's fascinating life story and career in wild cat conservation, which started in Brooklyn, New York, and lead to some of the world’s most exotic places, including Burma (Myanmar).

Dr. Rabinowitz's work in Myanmar led to the creation of five new protected areas, including the country's first marine national park, first and largest Himalayan national park, and the world’s largest tiger reserve in the Hukaung Valley. In northern Myanmar, Dr. Rabinowitz also discovered a new large mammal species and the world’s most primitive deer - the leaf deer. He has authored over one hundred scientific and popular articles and six books, two of which chart his tiger conservation work in Myanmar - Life in the Valley of Death: The Fight to Save Tigers in a Land of Guns, Gold, and Greed (2008) and Beyond the Last Village: A Journey of Discovery in Asia’s Forbidden Wilderness (2001)

This lecture is free and open to the public. RSVP now to learn about Dr. Rabinowitz’s adventures in Burma, the current threats facing big cats around the world, and the conservation models utilized by Panthera to save these species.
