Lords of Nature

Monday night, Speak Out for Species at UGA hosted a screening of the film “Lords of Nature.” The movie screening was a part of SOS’s Animal Voices Film Festival series. The organization has been screening interesting films every Monday night – and they are completely free!

“Lords of Nature” focuses on the wilderness’s predators. It shows wolves and cougars that are finding their way back into the wild after being banished by society, and it also explains the importance of these predators in America’s ecosystems.

There was a discussion along with the film screening led by Jim Ozier, who received his Master of Science in wildlife biology from UGA in 1986. He now works with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and oversees state efforts to conserve Georgia’s birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals. He also served on the Florida Panther Recovery Team, which includes Georgia as an important area of recovery.
