Tigers And Land Mines: Wildlife Experts Discuss Fate Of Korea's DMZ

A panel of wildlife and policy experts will discuss saving the unique and endangered wildlife found in Korea's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), on Sat., March 20, 1999, 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., at the Asia Society 725 Park Ave (at 70th St.).

BACKGROUND: Strewn with land mines, lined by barbed-wire fences and patrolled by armies, the DMZ has remained off limits to humans since the end of the Korean Conflict nearly 50 years ago. Today, the 150-by-two-mile-long DMZ represents the largest contiguous ecosystem left on the Korean peninsula. It supports rare and endangered species including the Siberian tiger, Amur leopard, oriental stork, and Asiatic black bear. Experts will outline a variety of wildlife and management topics including a proposal to turn the DMZ into a peace park.

SPEAKERS INCLUDE: Dr. Kent Redford, Director of Biodiversity Analysis and Coordination, Wildlife Conservation Society; Prof. K.C. Kim, Chair of the DMZ Forum, Penn State University; Dr. Joshua Ginsberg, Director for Asia Programs, Wildlife Conservation Society; Prof. Robert A. Scalapino, University of California Berkeley; Dr. Seung-ho Lee, Institute of Public Administration; Dr. George Archibald, Director, International Crane Foundation; Dr. Kathy MacKinnon, Senior Biodiversity Specialist, Environment Department, World Bank.

SPONSORS: Wildlife Conservation Society, Penn State Center for Biodiversity, Institute of Public Administration
