About the Speaker

Susan Kirks is a Naturalist with 18 years of field study and observations of American Badger. Recognized as California’s leading naturalist expert on badgers, she’ll share with us similarities and differences of Honey Badgers, United Kingdom or European Badgers and American Badgers. Susan also serves as President of Madrone Audubon Society in Sonoma County and chairs the Board of Paula Lane Action Network. American Badger is a rarely seen ground-burrowing mammal. With destroyed habitat, fragmented habitat areas from development, and a high mortality rate from vehicle death, American Badger will benefit from our greater understanding and conservation efforts. This awesome mammal is very important to grassland ecosystems and is native to California.
