Can We Save Native Species in Cities?
From bees to birds to bats, species around the world are threatened at unprecedented rates. Many people feel powerless to help, because they assume nature can be sustained only in large parks and reserves. Professor Margaret Carreiro will explain how you can protect native species by weaving them into your home's gardens and landscaping, creating food webs and friendly habitat for native species, especially pollinators and birds. Community conservation is all about keeping our common species common.
Dr. Carreiro is retired from UofL's Biology Dept., where her research focused on how urban environments affect nature in cities and suburbs. Besides giving talks on ecological topics, she continues to advocate for nature by serving on the boards of Wild Ones Louisville Chapter, Louisville Audubon Society and LCAN.
