Click to hide meeting description

The Caribbean is a global biodiversity hotspot, but it is also among the most threatened regions of the world in terms of its endemic species and coral reefs. A gorgeous and startling array of creatures occupying land, rivers and ocean are teetering on the edge of extinction. A community of stalwart conservationists is determined to change this picture, and help the region move into a nature-rich and more positive future. Learn about the specific challenges this area is experiencing and be inspired by innovative solutions that are being tried right now. Our focus will be on the jcoral reefs of Belize, but with a sprinkling of supportive examples from Jamaica, Cuba, and Florida as well.

Les Kaufman, Professor in the Boston University Marine Program, is an evolutionary ecologist who studies basic processes that drive the creation, collapse, and conservation of aquatic species diversity on coral reefs and tropical great lakes. His interests are increasingly turned toward clinical research on the dynamics of human-natural coupled systems, to create supporting science for global sustainability and climate change adaptation. In addition to being a member of the BU faculty, Kaufman is Senior Marine Scientist for Conservation International, a Research Scholar with The New England Aquarium and Associate in Ichthyology, Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology. He serves on the Science and Statistics Committee for the New England Fishery Management Council, and is working with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) colleagues to modernize federal ocean science. Les Kaufman also writes popular books, magazine articles and television, including multiple stints as either author or subject with NOVA and National Geographic. He was awarded the first marine Pew Fellowship in 1990, was selected to receive the Parker-Gentry Award in Conservation Biology for 2011 from the Chicago Field Museum.

General Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month, at the New England Aquarium Conference Center (located on the first floor of the Harbor Garage). Click here for directions

At each general meeting there will be the monthly drawing for a chance to have a hands on aquarium experience.
