Ravens are known to scavenge from wolves and people, but the degree to which they exploit these and other sources of food has not been studied in detail. In this virtual program, renowned corvid expert Dr. John Marzluff, professor of wildlife science at Univ. of Washington highlights the intriguing and highly intelligent nature of ravens, then shares findings from his latest research in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, where he is co-leading a study on ravens. Marzluff will describe the movements and activities of ravens in Yellowstone and relate these to wolf- and human-provisioned food.

This program is made possible by a generous gift from The Echo Charitable Foundation.
