This includes personal appearances in numerous cities each year to share conservation related messages.
Jim graduated with degrees in zoology and geology from Earlham College and is internationally recognized as an authority on predatory birds. He pursued a graduate degree by conducting the first studies of the world’s largest eagle, the harpy, in the wilds of the Amazon, and later tracked the movements of the Andean condor in Peru.
