March 20 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Join us on Wednesday, March 20 at 2pm for our upcoming webinar, “From Bunkers to Butterflies: Conservation of South Florida’s Lepidoptera at Zoo Miami’s Butterfly Lab” presented by Tiffany Moore, Conservation and Research Specialist, Conservation and Research Department Zoo Miami.
South Florida is home to many endangered and imperiled butterflies and moths. Many of which have little published literature which complicates the conservation of that species. There are also many factors that continue to contribute to the possible decline of native habitat. In the face of these negativities, there are ways that we can all help in the conservation of Florida Lepidoptera by building our own gardens.
Tiffany Moore graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science with two minors in Entomology and Outdoor Leadership. After graduating, Tiffany worked in the agriculture biotechnology industry assisting the development of genetically modified agriculture crops and pesticides. In 2019, Tiffany moved to Miami for the Butterfly Lab Specialist position at Zoo Miami. Tiffany was also accepted into the University of Florida graduate program Forest Resources and Conservation and finishes her master’s degree in December 2023. Tiffany has published life history papers on native Lepidoptera, continues to collaborate with partners on endangered butterflies in South Florida and continues to collaborate on research for the Miami tiger beetle with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
This webinar will be recorded. Those who register will receive a link to the recording when it becomes available.
