Tuesday, October 18, 2016
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Gateway Center at SUNY ESF
Event Description: ESF Professor James Gibbs will discuss his work on the tortoises of the Galapagos Islands. Dr. Gibbs, an internationally recognized scientist, has traveled to the Galapagos over 45 times to collaborate with the Galapagos National Park to restore populations of giant tortoises and the important ecosystem services they provide. Giant tortoises are among the most devastated of all Galapagos creatures but are now undergoing strong recovery thanks to concerted efforts by biologists and park managers. Dr. Gibbs will present a talk for the general public about the difficult but exciting work integrating science and management over two decades to restore these icons of a world famous biodiversity hotspot.
A reception will follow the lecture. Admission to the lecture and reception is free. Parking will be available on the ESF campus (download parking permit at: http://www.esf.edu/efb/travislecture/). The event is sponsored by the Dale L. Travis Public Lecture Series at SUNY ESF.
