In his book An Indomitable Beast: The Remarkable Journey of the Jaguar, big-cat expert Alan Rabinowitz shares his journey to conserve a species that, despite its past resilience, is now on a slide toward extinction. Including a mix of personal stories and scientific inquiry, this lecture will go deep into the realm of the jaguar, offering fascinating accounts from the field and beyond. But the talk is not only about jaguars, but also about how to improve survival rates for other living things—and also how to more ably face down immediate and long-term catastrophic changes to our environment. The lecture will be followed by a book signing.

Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
