“Tails” of Hello and Good-bye: Extirpated and Introduced Mammals of Maryland
November 12, 2020 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Presented by the Natural History Society of Maryland (NHSM).
Populations of plants and animals in any given environment are always in flux. Change is the only constant. Maryland used to be home to animals that have gone extinct, such as the saber-toothed tiger, or have been extirpated, meaning a local extinction like the gray wolf or elk. While some animals leave, others arrive either through natural or manmade actions (nutria, black-tailed jackrabbit).
Join Steve Sheffield, professor of biology at Bowie State and curator of mammals for NHSM, to explore Maryland’s mammal record of past, present, and perhaps future in this informative and interactive online presentation.
