The California Wolf Center cordially invites you to our 2012 Wolf Awareness Week fundraising event exploring the effect of wolves on many aspects of the ecosystem through a specific phenomenon known as a trophic cascade. Cristina Eisenberg, wolf expert, author, and conservation advocate, will speak at both afternoon and evening programs about the unique role that wolves and other large carnivores play in healthy ecosystems. Cristina Eisenberg has a doctorate in Forestry and Wildlife from Oregon State University, and she is an Aldo Leopold Scholar. Her research focuses on the ecological effects of wolves and fire in Rocky Mountain ecosystems, and she is actively engaged in ecological restoration that supports ecosystem-scale carnivore conservation and implementation of fire on private and public lands. She is also interested in wolf dispersal and recolonization and how that affects ecosystems. She is the research director on the High Lonesome Ranch in Colorado, a conservation ranch managed using a Land Ethic model. Her book The Wolf's Tooth: Trophic Cascades and Biodiversity is currently available from Island Press, and she is working on her second book, The Carnivore Way: A Transboundary Conservation Vision for a Changing World.
