The Seminar Series in Biology presents:
“From turtles to teaching: a survey of different conservation projects” presented by Dr. Suzanne Macey, Program Manager and Biodiversity Scientist, American Museum of Natural History, Center for Biodiversity and Conservation (CBC).
Dr. Macey is an ecologist and conservation biologists. As the Program Manager for the CBC’s Network of Conservation Educators and Practitioners (NCEP), Dr. Macey works to develop the capacity needed to sustain the Earth’s diversity. NCEP seeks to improve the practice of biodiversity conservation by improving training, teaching, and learning in biodiversity conservation
In this presentation, Dr. Suzanne Macey will bring you through a whirl-wind tour of the different conservation projects underway at the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation (CBC) at the American Museum of Natural History. She’ll and explain how the CBC transforms knowledge—from diverse sources and perspectives spanning areas of scientific research as well as traditional and local knowledge—into conservation action. Focusing on her own work, she’ll explain her ongoing research on the ecology and conservation of different turtle species around the world, as well as her work to improve conservation education with the Network of Conservation Educators and Practitioners (NCEP).
This seminar is hosted by the Biology Department and will take place 4 pm Friday December 8 in Science I room 121.
About this seminar series: This series is offered several times throughout the semester to provide our student community with opportunities to learn about scientific research and professions. Speakers may include our own department faculty or students, as well as biologists and other professionals from elsewhere. All are welcome.
