How to Protect Earth’s Biological Diversity Forever: Lessons from Maitreya Buddha, Pharma Bros, and Yucca Mountain

November 4 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Academy of Science - Zoom

Free and OPEN to ALL. Junior Academy members and middle and high school students are welcome and encouraged to attend. Registration coming soon!

Featured Speaker: Adam Smith, Ph.D., Associate Scientist, Global Change Ecology, Center for Conservation and Sustainable Development, Missouri Botanical Garden

Today, global society faces a grand dilemma: biological diversity upon which we depend requires tens of millions of years to evolve, and yet we are currently driving species to extinction at rates that rival past mass extinctions. How can we ensure the persistence of these “living time capsules” that have the potential to be—for all practical purposes—immortal? Using examples from around the world of how societies have wrestled with this kind of quandary, Missouri Botanical Garden conservation ecologist and scientist, Dr. Adam Smith, tackles this critical dilemma.
