The nonprofit Defenders of Wildlife and scientist, author and naturalist Sue Morse are to lead the discussion on the canines’ role in ecosystems and what they can teach about domesticated dogs. The presentation, “Wild Cousins of Our Best Friends: Wolves, Coyotes and Foxes,” is free of charge.

Morse, a wildlife tracker who founded the nonprofit Keeping Track in 1994 to monitor the status of wildlife and habitat, is to share her photos and personal adventures studying these animals in habitats as varied as northern Minnesota, Montana, Arizona, the Arctic and the northeastern United States and Canada. She has worked with wildlife agencies, land trust officials, transportation leaders and organizations like Defenders of Wildlife throughout North America.

Defenders of Wildlife works to enhance wildlife conservation.

The visitor center is at 100 Conservation Way in Manteo.
