Dr. Luke Hunter, President and Chief Conservation Officer of the global wild cat conservation organization Panthera, will discuss “The Endangered Lion” on Thursday, Jan. 28, at 6:30 p.m., at the Bruce Museum, 1 Museum Drive, Greenwich.

At Panthera, Dr. Hunter oversees the organization’s field programs around the world and supervises the scientific priorities of Panthera’s critical conservation work.

He has contributed to more than 140 scientific papers and popular articles, and has written seven books including Cheetah (2003), Cats of Africa: Behavior, Ecology and Conservation (2006) and Field Guide to Carnivores of the World (2011) which has been translated into Chinese, French and German editions. His latest book, Wild Cats of the World was published by Bloomsbury in 2015.

The lecture, which is held in collaboration with the current Bruce Museum exhibition Fierce and Fragile: Big Cats in the Art of Robert Dallet, begins at 6:30; galleries will be open from 5 p.m.  The lecture is free but reservations are required by email at [email protected]
