Bill is an internationally renowned conservation biologist and explorer and started the ECOLIFE Conservation non profit organization.
Bill's talk is the story of the Monarch butterfly's amazing migration, now an endangered biological phenomenon.
From the foothills of California where he pioneered the early years of the California condor recovery program to the remote forests of Madagascar where Bill had his life forever changed, he has collected unusual stories of wildlife and the people who depend on them. Traveling to more than 100 countries, Bill specialized in rain forest transects and remote field conservation programs for the Zoological Society of San Diego. Bill left the zoo in 2008 after 35 years and launched ECOLIFE Conservation. His career covered a diversity of wildlife from butterflies to gorillas, ants to elephants and now as founder of ECOLIFE Conservation. Bill is working to bring a humanitarian component into the world of conservation.
