It is no secret that our world is facing unprecedented challenges like climate change, mass extinction, pollution of our waterways, and the toxification of our planet. In order for us to solve these problems, we will need to take both unconventional approaches to the science, and the community of science. In this talk, Dr. Muldrow, Jr. will present a challenge to conservation biology regarding the methods needed to employ to avert disaster. And, to ensure success, we will need to take everyone along for the ride.

We are excited that we will be live-streaming from WWU campus for the webinar for our off-campus audience. Due to the pandemic, only WWU students, faculty, and staff will be in-person for the presentation but we look forward to welcoming you all virtually.
