When: TONIGHT, Tuesday, May 17, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Where: Virtual
Fee: FREE, but registration is required

Join us tonight at 7:00 PM for a FREE program on Madagascar with board member Dr. Libby Lyons and her daughter Dr. Sally Bornbusch. In 2018 this mother-daughter team explored many regions of Madagascar: spiny forests in the southwest, high plateaus in the center, and lush mountainous forests of the northeast. Based on their experience within Madagascar, they will focus on its famous lemurs – a group of primates found only in Madagascar, and its endemic birds. They will discuss some of the recently extinct animals, the human impacts that continue to challenge the island nation, and conservation efforts to protect Madagascar’s unique biological richness. They will also reflect on their scientific career paths in hopes of helping young women and girls pursue their own passions in environmentalism and science.
