Woods Hole Panel Discussion to Explore Zoo and Aquarium Conservation

WOODS HOLE – Several wild species and ecosystems around the world face numerous human-caused threats, such as habitat destruction and fragmentation to climate change.

Researchers say there is hope and it may come in the form of zoos and aquariums.

The MBL WHOI Library will host a panel discussion Tuesday, July 24 that explores the evolution of zoo and aquarium conservation from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Marine Biological Laboratory’s Lillie Auditorium in Woods Hole.

The panel will celebrate the recently published book “The Ark and Beyond,” authored by a top group of zoo and aquarium leaders, historians, biologists and social scientists, which traces the history and considers the present and future role of zoos and conservation organizations.

The book is part of a three-part series that highlights the ongoing work by the MBL in the creation and dissemination of science – in its broader historical context, along with current practice and future potential.

The panel is open to the public and free parking will be available in any MBL lot.
