Program: "Of Birds and Beetles: Conserving Biodiversity in a Dynamic World"
Maintaining the variety of life forms on Earth is a challenge; indeed, some would argue that it is the single most important issue we face. This is daunting work given the pace of global change, most notably climate change, but thenatural world can be robust if we give it a half a chance and bird conservation provides some excellent examples of what we can accomplish.
