Hair-Raising Adventures and Stories from The Land of The Bear

The Hidden War: Spec Ops Game Wardens Fight for America’s Wildlife
Lt. John Nores Jr, team leader for California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife’s spec ops Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET), will give an update and overview of the success and challenges of his team’s fight to stop international drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) from destroying our nation’s wildlife, wildlands and waterways throughout the United States.  Reviewing his team’s first five years of operations, John will cover cartel environmental crime trends over that time period and highlight his team’s development and use of amazing K9’s to stop the decimation inflicted on our nation’s wildlife resources by these clandestine groups. Nores will discuss California’s recent legalization of recreational cannabis production and use (Proposition 64), the effects these laws have on our wildlife resources and the impacts other states should consider when looking at legalization.  John will also describe the challenges for SCI, and other worldwide conservation organizations, to aid in this national fight.
