October Science Café: Extinction is Forever...

October 22nd, 2014 | 5:30-7:30PM

Hunting, fishing, habitat loss, climate change, invasive species and toxic algae blooms - the Great Lakes area can be a dangerous place for rare species! In commemoration of the death of Martha, the last Passenger pigeon 100 years ago, our discussion will focus on the forces that cause extinction, and current efforts at conservation in and near the Great Lakes. How does what is going on locally relate to global biodiversity challenges? Join Sara Adlerstein-Gonzalez and Johannes Foufopoulos of  the U-M School of Natural Resources and the Environment (SNRE) and  Jim Diana, Professor of SNRE and Director of Michigan Sea Grant, for a lively discussion of past errors, current efforts, and future biodiversity.
