Your Speaker: Trinity Professor Kelly Lyons, Ph.D.

The United States has historically been a worldwide leader in the development of conservation and wildlife management strategies. We have learned from historical precedent that, in the absence of extraordinary leadership, success in the preservation and conservation of wildlands and wildlife only occurs either under duress or where ethical perspectives coalesce. Thus, the ultimate question we face is whether we can unify these perspectives and elevate the value of other species, biodiversity, and ecosystems before irreparable scarcity and damage occurs.

In this discussion, Kelly Lyons, Ph.D., will briefly present the history of preservation and conservation in the US since the Louisiana Purchase. Further, Lyons will share her perspective that there is more about the environment that unites us than divides us. She will also discuss some of the great possibilities ahead in the realm of environmental innovation, sustainability, and ecosystem conservation.
