Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series

"This Year In Conservation" 2013 Panel Discussion

SCCS­‐NY 2013 featured the Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series Panel Discussion as a special public program on the evening of Wednesday, October 19. The focus of the discussion was “This Year in Conservation,” and featured an engaging conversation between conservationists on their own unique careers, and how the important innovations, milestones, and events of the last twelve months have challenged and inspired conservation action on the world stage and in their own individual work. The evening's panelists included: 

  • Dr. Stewart Diemont, Department of Environmental Resources Engineering, State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry
  • Dr. Rodolfo Dirzo, Department of Biology, Stanford University 
  • Dr. Jane Carter Ingram, Ecosystem services, Wildlife Conservation Society
  • Moderator: Dr. Eleanor Sterling, Director, Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, American Museum of Natural History 

The Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series was established in honor of Dr. Mack Lipkin, Sr., by his many friends and admirers. Dr. Lipkin was a physician who was a gentle and powerful force in advancing the most humane and caring practices of medicine. The Museum is proud to welcome Stewart Diemont, Rodolfo Dirzo, and Catherine Graham as the 2013 Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series Fellows. 

This is a yearly event that is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact us at biodiversity@amnh.org
