Community Outreach

RAEI offers educational seminars, lectures, workshops, and informal slide-shows about our work. These talks can be tailored to many different settings and audiences; we have given over 60 presentations to diverse audiences ranging from photography clubs to conservation organizations to professional biologists. Many organizations we present to are from Arizona and other western states, but we can travel just about anywhere to present to your group. Some of the topics that we cover include:
