Grit City Think & Drink: Talking Trash: Diets of Urban Wildlife

Talks/Lectures
Talking Trash: Using Geochemistry to Quantify Human Food Sources in the Diets of Urban Wildlife in Tacoma and Seattle with Dr. Kena-Fox Dobbs, University of Puget Sound. The most abundant and ubiquitous wildlife species in human-dominated landscapes are mesocarnivores, and here in the Pacific Northwest our urban centers are home to large populations of co-occurring raccoons and opossums. In our study we used the biogeochemistry of hair samples collected from Seattle and Tacoma to estimate trophic structure and the contribution of anthropogenic food sources (primarily human food waste and pet food) to raccoon and opossum diets. We found interesting differences between species, and dietary convergence among sub-populations within each species. Dr. Kena Fox-Dobbs is an Associate Professor of Geology and Environmental Policy at the University of Puget Sound. She and her undergraduate students use biogeochemical approaches to investigate patterns of energy and nutrient flow in modern and ancient ecosystems. Join us for our monthly Grit City Think& Drink!

Grit City Think & Drink: Framing Injustice: How the Media Covered The Dakota Access Pipeline and Why It Matters

Talks/Lectures
How do the media cover environmental justice movements and why does it matter? To answer these questions, Dr. Ellen Moore will be discussing her work with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe on the media coverage of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The talk includes discussion of the Dakota Access Pipeline controversy and the media coverage of the #NODAPL movement that emerged in 2016 and 2017. Here, Ellen will present the results of her framing analysis of the large media outlets that covered the movement, and also will describe her work with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to reveal their perceptions of the pipeline, the media, politics, and social movements. Ellen Moore teaches and conducts research on the relationship between media and environmental issues, focusing in particular on environmental justice, at UW Tacoma. Her first book, "Green Screen," examined how Hollywood represents environmental disasters in different genres of film; her second book, "Framing Injustice," explores the ways in which the mainstream media covered the #NODAPL movement by drawing in politics, history, and social movements. She lives in Tacoma with her husband and two Marvel dogs Loki and Groot.
