Biodiversity Loss

August 30, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT

Free

Join Professor Kerri Crawford of the University of Houston for a talk on the issue of biodiversity loss. Our planet is home to millions of species that rely on each other and provide important ecosystem services. Humans, too, rely on nature — but we take a disproportionate amount of the resources and modify the environment in ways that negatively affect other species. Our effects on the environment are directly causing what many have termed “the 6th mass extinction.” In this presentation, Dr. Crawford will provide information on what biodiversity is, how quickly we are losing biodiversity, why biodiversity is important for us, and what is being done to protect biodiversity. Time for interactive discussion will be provided after her talk.
