The Alliance was excited to participate in the 3rd Annual State of the Biodiversity Symposium with our partners at the San Diego Natural History Museum.
The 3rd annual State of Biodiversity Symposium, held by the San Diego Natural History Museum, connected local stakeholders and community members in rallying around the latest science, emerging threats, and management success stories in the world of conservation. The Symposium, timed to be after the State of the Union, State, and City addresses, was convened to shine a light on conservation and biodiversity, a topic that is discussed all too infrequently in these public addresses.
The symposium featured a keynote presentation by Todd Keeler-Wolf entitled ‘California-Style Biodiversity: Why We Wonder, Worry, and Hope’ followed by four concurrent panel sessions: San Diego Canyon Conservation, Habitat Conversation Plans (HCPs) for Conservation and Discovery, Biodiversity and Human Health, and Implications of Black-Market Biodiversity.
The Alliance was excited to join the conversation and support our partners at the San Diego Natural History Museum by talking with the public on the impacts of climate change to biodiversity through hands on activities through out the day.
