Houston Museum of Natural Science presents Avian Conservation and Ecology Symposium
Birds are an important part of the world. Many are so common people subconsciously take them for granted as part of the landscape. However, approximately 15 percent of the planet's birds are considered threatened or endangered for a number of reasons, with habitat loss and non-sustainable hunting being the primary causes.
To help recognize Global Migratory Bird Week, Houston Museum of Natural Science will host an all-star cast of Conservation Biologists who will present their cutting-edge avian research. These are real scientists presenting real data, the raw facts. Guests will have a chance to directly interact with the speakers one-on-one after the event.
