In his lecture Kim Steinhardt will share a global conservation story and photos documenting the lives of the Pacific Ocean’s southern sea otter and the Serengeti’s cheetah. He will discuss these species’ struggle to avoid extinction, linked by the common threat posed by humans. According to Steinhardt, their stories reveal resilience in the face of grave threats as well as the differences between the wildlife conservation efforts for each species under widely differing legal systems.

Steinhardt will also sign copies of his latest book for children, Sabby the Sea Otter: A Pup’s True Adventure and Triumph. Steinhardt is an environmental author and wildlife photographer. A former administrative law judge, he teaches law classes on legislative policymaking emphasizing ocean advocacy and wildlife conservation.
