Conserving species, particularly the “charismatic megafauna,” has been a focus of conservation efforts for many decades. With a growing human population, the protection of any single species—compared to the conservation of a landscape or ecosystem—can easily be questioned. Annette Lanjouw will discuss why the conservation of individual species is critical and how this effort enables us to connect with the environment in ways that make action and responses meaningful.

Presented in collaboration with the Project on Race & Gender in Science & Medicine at the Hutchins Center for African and African-American Research, Harvard University and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology
