2004 Expanding the Ark: The Emerging Science and Practice of Invertebrate Conservation

Expanding the Ark: The Emerging Science and Practice of Invertebrate Conservation was convened to examine the status of invertebrate biodiversity. Speakers from around the world considered a broad range of perspectives on how best to advance an invertebrate conservation agenda. The Symposium provided a venue to engage the scientific community, conservation practitioners, policy makers, and the public in a dialogue on the fate of invertebrate biodiversity, and to map concrete approaches for future action.

The symposium was held in collaboration with Conservation International, the National Park Service, NatureServe, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Xerces Society. Support for the symposium was provided by Daniel and Sheryl Tishman, and John Tishman. Additional thanks go to The Explorers Club for loan of easels for the poster session.
