Susan Margulis, PhD, chair and associate professor of animal behavior, ecology and conservation and biology (ABEC), will serve as a featured speaker at the ninth “2 The Outdoors” environmental forum. Entitled “Primates: Species on the Brink?,” the forum will examine the serious issues facing primates in the wild, as more than 60 percent are now threatened with extinction, and more than 75 percent are facing declines in population.
In addition to Margulis, Kayla Woodard of the Buffalo Zoo and Carmen Presti of The Primate Sanctuary take an in- depth look at the causes of the primates’ decline, as well as ways humanity can stem the tide. The event, which is free to the public, will be held on Wednesday, March 29 at 7:30 p.m. at Tifft Nature Preserve, 1200 Fuhrmann Blvd. in Buffalo.
