Friends of the Island Fox at Sierra Club Event

What is the current status of the endangered Channel Island fox? 

Come join us and find out.

Friends of the Island Fox will be joining the Ventura Sierra Club for an evening program hosted by Jim Hines. 

We'll be presenting a FREE family friendly program:

Island Foxes: In Their Island World
February 5th 2015
7-8:30 PM (Doors open at 6:15 PM)
at the Community Meeting Room
Ventura City Hall
501 Poli Street, Ventura, CA 93001

NOTE: Plenty of free parking behind city hall

We'll be talking about the vital role island foxes play in their island habitat, new information on island fox diet, the amazing recovery of all four endangered subspecies, and the future: concerns about impacts from changing climate, human trash, and biosecurity

As well as the presentation, there will be information on conservation efforts and educational displays. Compare your hand to a fox footprint. Compare an island fox to a gray fox or a red fox. How small is an island fox? How big is a golden eagle?

Bring your questions and then help us spread the word about protecting our rare Channel Island foxes.
