Galapagos Conservancy cordially invites you to a lecture at the UCR Palm Desert Graduate Center:
RESTORING THE GALAPAGOS TORTOISE DYNASTY
Innovations in Research and Management Result in Enduring Success
Linda Cayot, Ph.D., Science Advisor for Galapagos Conservancy
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2012 AT 6:00 P.M.
UCR Palm Desert
75-080 Frank Sinatra Drive, Palm Desert, CA 92211
Over the past 50 years in Galapagos, an integrated approach to conservation, continually combining new research and adaptive management, has resulted in major advances in the recovery of populations of the Galapagos giant tortoise. The successful tortoise breeding and rearing program was only the start. Dr. Cayot will explain how increased understanding, habitat restoration, and advances in tortoise genetics have created opportunities that would have been impossible to imagine even a few decades ago!
This event is part of the UCR Boyd Deep Canyon Lecture Series hosted in partnership by UCR Palm Desert and The Living Desert. This series is free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
