TOPIC                       In recognition of the Museum’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation (CBC) pioneering work over the last two decades, this year’s event will focus on past and future efforts to conserve biological diversity. In its activities around the world—from supporting community-conserved marine areas in the Solomon Islands to working with conservation educators and managers in Madagascar—the CBC transforms knowledge into action through multidisciplinary and collaborative research, development of conservation capacity at multiple levels of engagement, and by convening and connecting key actors.

 

MODERATOR         Lynn Sherr, former correspondent for ABC News’ “20/20”who now reports for a wide range of media including PBS, The Daily Beast, More magazine, and Town and Country magazine, among others.

 

PANELISTS             Dr. Eleanor Sterling, director of the CBC at the Museum, leads the development and coordination of the CBC’s national and international field and capacity development projects. Building on her interdisciplinary training and experience, she bridges biological and socio-cultural perspectives and integrates them into management strategies for healthy ecological and human systems. She has over 30 years of field research and community outreach experience in both terrestrial and marine systems around the globe. In 2012, Columbia University honored her with the Graduate Student Advisory Council Faculty Mentoring Award for her excellence in teaching and mentoring. Dr. Sterling was recently recognized for her commitment to conservation in 2013 when she received the Society of Conservation Biology’s highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award, for her “extraordinary contributions to the conservation of biological diversity…and for 30 years of teaching, mentoring and inspiring a generation of conservation biologists worldwide.”

 

Dr. Armando Valdés-Velásquez has over a decade of experience designing, leading and evaluating capacity development projects for diverse audiences, from undergraduates to university faculty, conservation professionals and community members to decision makers. With an undergraduate degree in biological sciences from the Cayetano Heredia University (UPCH) in Lima, Peru, a doctorate from the University of Bonn, Germany, and specialized courses on capacity development, he now is an associate professor at the UPCH and the coordinator for programs and projects for the Tropical Andes Alliance (AAT). The AAT is a regional platform comprising 16 prestigious institutions with the mission to generate and strengthen capacities and human talent for biodiversity conservation, sustainable landscape management, and climate change adaptation in the five countries of the Tropical Andean Region.

 

Andrew Revkin has been covering environmental sustainability for more than three decades from the Amazon, the White House, and even the North Pole, mainly for The New York Times. He has won top awards in science journalism multiple times, along with a Guggenheim Fellowship. Since 2010, he has been the senior fellow for environmental understanding at Pace University, where he teaches courses in blogging, environmental communication, and documentary film. He has written acclaimed books on global warming, the changing Arctic, and the assault on the Amazon rain forest, as well as three book chapters on science communication. Drawing on his experience with his Times blog, Dot Earth, which Time magazine named one of the top 25 blogs in 2013, Revkin speaks to audiences around the world about the power of the web to foster progress. He’s also a performing songwriter, was a longtime accompanist for Pete Seeger, and recently released his first album of original songs. Two films have been based on his work: “Rock Star” (Warner Brothers, 2001) and “The Burning Season” (HBO, 1994).

 

PROCEEDS              All proceeds from the Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon support the Museum’s scientific research and educational initiatives, including important work in biodiversity conservation.
