How do scientists learn to understand and protect the Earth? 

This month's Frontiers Lecture is presented as part of EarthFest, the Museum's annual celebration of Earth Day.

Scientists from the Museum’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation present their exciting research in this family-friendly program. Learn about new methods to track turtles (think turtle backpacks!) with Suzanne Macey, discover how the relationship between predators and prey affects restoration of wetlands with Alex Moore, check out how new technology can help count and identify animals from images and video with Peter Ersts, and explore how people of different cultural traditions care for and protect habitats with Pua’ala Pascua. Join us to hear these scientists share stories from their work and ask your questions!
