Description

Ferret Town

 

Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet a live black-footed ferret
from The National Black-footed Ferret Conservation Center in Colorado!



In 1979 the black-footed ferret was thought to be extinct - possibly gone forever from the American prairies. Then in 1981, a small population was discovered near the remote town of Meeteetse, Wyoming, inciting a race to recover the species from the remaining 18 individuals. In this documentary, captive breeding programs, habitat protection, and political hurdles lead up to the long-awaited return of black-footed ferrets to a town that was reshaped by its discovery. "Ferret Town" presents one of the best conservation stories in the United States, posing the question- how far will we go to save one species?

This film is produced by The Content Lab LLC, an independent production company based in Wyoming, with support from The Meeteetse Museum Foundation, The Wyoming Humanities Council, and the The Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund.
