This photo-journal presentation focuses on Renee’s extensive research of wild anacondas and endangered crocodiles, along with stories of other reptiles, birds, and mammals she studied while living in the Llanos of Venezuela. Her reptile research was funded by National Geographic and the Wildlife Conservation Society and featured on National Geographic TV, Dateline, NBC, Animal Planet, and Discovery. Renee relates the lessons she learned in South America to conservation strategies here at home in San Diego County.

Renée Owens is conservation biologist specializing in wildlife ecology and animal behavior. She’s had her own environmental consultancy since 1994, providing her with opportunities to work throughout California and and Latin American.

She has collaborated extensively with non-profits to assist with conservation research, education, and advocacy and is now Director of the Sage Wildlife Conservation League, a new wildlife non-profit based in San Diego. She also teaches Environmental Science at Imperial Valley College.
