You betcha'! We'll have to work it around my day job, though. I am open to talking to schools, civic groups, or environmental groups anywhere in Texas and outside it on some occasions. Any presentation outside of the Houston area will need to be arranged at least a couple of weeks before the speaking date. Here's what I have available:
A 30 minute slide presentation centered around my 1999 Earthwatch expedition in southern Idaho. I share with the audience what it was like to hunt, tree, collar, and work with the cats, including some kittens. I end the presentation by talking about the status of the cats in Texas.
Two videos capture my Feb 2000 experiences with a repeat trip to Dr. John Laundre's mountain lion expedition. One is 32 minutes long, featuring a chase for a one-eyed cat named Chloe (best footage). The other is 56 minutes long and contains the footage with Chloe and preceded by footage showing the treeing, capture, and work with Violet.
These videos are in VHS formats and the shorter video is also available on CD ROM via a low resolution .AVI format. School teachers interested in sharing the video with their classes can initially contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to check for availability. A formal request for loan of the videos must be made on school stationary.
I'm a lousy typist, but I'm willing to chat with a school or college class via AOL Instant Messenger or ICQ. Also, we can try audio only or video conferencing via Microsoft NetMeeting. (I have usage of a NetMeeting server at my ".com" site.)
