Combating the Extinction Crisis in Alabama with Bill Finch
Of the 10 mainland North American species declared extinct by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at the end of September, all but one were from Alabama. While difficult to fully quantify, it is suspected the number of species lost in Alabama is now more than 100 in just the past two centuries. Join conservationist Bill Finch in a discussion exploring the significant losses to Alabama biodiversity and the current efforts in place to halt the extinction of our native species.
Join us to hear from local experts and learn more about interesting environmental topics. Please bring your own seating. No registration required.
