SCCS­‐NY 2015 featured the Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series Panel Discussion as a special public program on the evening of Thursday, October 8. The focus of the discussion was “This Year in Conservation,” and featured an engaging conversation between conservationists on their experience and how innovations, ideas, and events over the past year have challenged and inspired conservation action on the world stage and in their own work. The evening's panelists included: 

  • Dr. Rodrigo Medellín, Senior Professor of Ecology, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México  
  • Dr. Ivette Perfecto, George W. Pack Professor of Ecology, Natural Resources, and Environment, University of Michigan
  • Moderator: Dr. Eleanor Sterling, Chief Conservation Scientist at the 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 Rodrigo Medellín and Ivette Perfecto as the 2015 Mack Lipkin Man and Nature Series Fellows.
