Café Scientifique: The Short and Happy Life of a Serengeti Lion

Date: 09/17/2013

Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Bryant Lake Bowl

Cost: $5-$12


One of the most fearsome and charismatic animals on the planet, lions have long been of great fascination to humans. But for all their so-called ferociousness, their existence is in peril. Craig Packer studies lions' evolutionary traits and their complex social structure—while working with the people of Africa— to ensure their survival.

Join us for an evening of thought-provoking discussion, drinks and dining with world-renowned lion researcher and University of Minnesota professor Craig Packer. Packer was recently featured in the August 2013 National Geographic feature, The Short Happy Life of a Serengeti Lion.
