From warmer, wetter winters
to increasingly severe storms, our region’s climate is changing before our eyes
and it presents many challenges to Vermont’s native wildlife. How might different species respond to those
many challenges and what are conservationists doing to address them?
VINS is pleased to host Tom
Rogers from VT Fish and Wildlife Department for an evening of colorful photos
and captivating stories that aim to answer many of these questions. Join us to deepen your understanding of how
climate change is affecting wildlife and what you can do to help conserve
biodiversity in Vermont in the face of these new threats.
Tom Rogers is a biologist who has worked on a
variety of conservation projects, from zebras in Kenya to sage grouse and bald
eagles in Wyoming. He has a M.S. in Wildlife Biology from the
University of Montana. His
graduate research focused on large carnivores such as grizzly bears and black
bears in the Yellowstone Ecosystem.
Tom Rogers currently works in outreach for the
Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, connecting the public with fish and
wildlife through writing and photography.
He has been with the department since 2012.
