Berkeley Speaker Series

Rodenticides: The New DDT?

Featuring Lisa Owens Viani

Are anticoagulant rat poisons the new DDT? For our February Speaker Series, Lisa Owens Viani will describe the epidemic of wildlife mortality caused by these poisons. She’ll explain their impacts on birds of prey such as hawks and owls, among many other animals. She’ll summarize proposed legislation to reduce the use of dangerous rodenticides, and what we can do to help beneficial predators thrive and provide us with their free, natural pest control services.

See our Speaker Series page for details.
