Extinction in Our Time

Monday, February 11, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Andrew Blaustein, professor of zoology, Oregon State University. With dramatic population declines and extinctions worldwide, amphibians (frogs, toads, salamanders and newts) are among the most threatened animals on the planet. Habitat loss, climate change, disease and pollution have well-documented impacts. “Amphibians are embedded in culture and religion and are ecologically important,” says Blaustein. “They may aid humans medically and are interesting to observe for their own sake. Their loss would be devastating in so many ways.”
