Thursday, November 3: The Sixth Extinction –
Saving our Planet, Saving Ourselves
In relatively recent times a mammal called Homo sapiens
has become a geophysical force, altering Earth’s life with profound and often devastating consequences. One of these consequences, called “the Sixth Extinction,” poses one of the greatest challenges our species has ever faced.
As part of our Speaker Series, on Thursday, Nov. 3, environmental journalist John Moir will discuss the causes of the Sixth Extinction and how we can respond, both individually and collectively. John’s work has appeared in The New York Times, Smithsonian, the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, and many other publications. He is the author of two nonfiction books (including Return of the Condor), has contributed to three anthologies, and has received more than two-dozen writing awards.
This talk, hosted by the Watsonville Wetlands Watch, is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Fitz Wetlands Educational Resource Center. Click for map/directions.
