Barnard Year of Science: Conservation, Collaboration, and Community
Please join us for a dynamic cross-continental discussion between Barnard and WildCRU, a pioneering, interdisciplinary research unit within the University of Oxford’s Department of Zoology, about the importance of conservation, collaboration, and community.
In this conversation, you will learn about WildCRU’s innovative approach solving conservation problems, and their commitment to their “conservation quartet” to understand, educate, involve, and implement. The panelists will also discuss how Barnard exemplifies this “quartet” in our work to research and resolve conservation problems, and they will explore the College’s current and future work in the area of conservation.
