Abstract

We live at a time when the rate of extinction is thought to be 1,000 times higher than normal. In this hopeful talk, Sarah Stock describes how the dire fate of two animals in Yosemite was reversed, showing what is possible when we boldly address past mistakes.
Sarah Stock is a Wildlife Biologist at Yosemite National Park where she has been overseeing the park's program for land-animal biodiversity since 2006. She studies wildlife ranging from songbird population dynamics to the ecology of bats. She earned her Master’s degree at the University of Idaho in 2001 where she focused on the migration ecology of forest owls. Before moving to Yosemite Valley with her family, she studied birds in locations ranging from Alaska to the South Pacific islands. Sarah has authored many technical reports and peer-reviewed publications on western landbird status, ecology, and management.
