Tracking Exotic Mammals on the Georgia Coast
Dr. Anthony J. Martin, Emory University
Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 2:30pm
Although most of the Georgia barrier islands are undeveloped, with many beautiful and natural places, non-native mammals that live there have a significant impact on island environments. Join Dr. Martin for a lively presentation about how to recognize the tracks and signs of feral hogs, cattle, horses and cats, and explore the effects these animals have on the ecosystems of the Georgia coast.
This presentation is held in conjunction with the special exhibition Extreme Mammals and the publication of Dr. Martin's latest book, Life Traces of the Georgia Coast. A book signing will follow immediately afterward in the Museum Lobby.
Cost: Included with Museum admission and free for members. Seating is limited. Advance reservations are required at 404.929.6400. Book must be purchased separately and will be available in the Fernbank Museum Store.
