The Center for Humans and Nature, the Hastings Center, and the American Museum of Natural History’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, invite you to a fascinating evening of dialogue tackling big questions that challenge humanity today—and that could change our future. This year, distinguished scholars and guests will explore two fundamental questions: "How far should we go to bring back lost species?" and "Mind and morality: where do they meet?” Don’t miss the closing discussion moderated by Krista Tippett, host of the enlightening radio show On Being.
