The Niabi Zoo is hosting a series of lectures on conservation, ecology, biology and zoology. 

“We want to connect people to the natural world through science and education,” says Lee Jackson, director of Niabi Zoo. “Questioning the validity of science is becoming all too common. One of the best ways to restore confidence in the scientific method is to hear from the scientists themselves who are leaders in their respective disciplines and are directly involved in field conservation and research.”

Niabi Zoo members, zoo volunteers, students (with valid college ID) are invited to attend the series at no cost. An $8 fee per lecture will be charged to all other individuals wishing to attend. No parking fee will be collected.

Space is limited to 45 individuals per lecture. Those interested in attending should RSVP online at or call 309-799-3482 x 222

Dr. Juan Manual Campos Krauer is an Assistant Professor for the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences & Department of Wildlife Ecology & Conservation at the University of Florida. He specializes in wildlife health and conservation, emerging zoonotic diseases, veterinary parasitology, vector-borne diseases, wildlife ecology, historical biogeography, phylogeography and biodiversity and invasive species.
