23rd Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon
by AMNH on
On April 24, 2013, the Museum hosted its 23rd Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon “Islands in a Changing World: Resilience and Recovery.” The event featured a panel of experts discussing island resiliency, including New York and surrounding areas’ recovery from Hurricane Sandy, and the effects of climate change on oceanic islands.
Moderator Lynn Sherr, former “20/20” correspondent, was joined by panelists Stuart Gaffin, research scientist at the Center for Climate Systems Research at Columbia University; Philip Kramer, director of The Nature Conservancy’s Caribbean Program; and Seth W. Pinsky, president of the New York City Economic Development Corporation and leader of New York City’s Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency.
Listen to a portion of this year’s lecture, and join the Museum next April for the 24th Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon.
