Subject: Endangered Species Roundtable Discussion Call for Abstracts

Call for abstracts:

 

Avoiding Extinction: the Future of Endangered Species in the Tropics

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

Antioch University New England

Keene, New Hampshire

 

Saving endangered species from becoming extinct and protecting their habitat is crucial for our future. As species are lost, so are our options for future discovery and advancement. The impacts of biodiversity loss include loss of ecosystem resiliency, lost opportunity for new medicine discoveries, greater vulnerability to natural disasters and greater effects from global warming. Should endangered species, threatened by habitat loss, hunting, or other means be left to die in the wild? Or taken into captivity for breeding, which would cost millions of dollars? What are the ethical or moral issues involved? What are new strategies for species recovery? How have new technologies contributed to their protection? If we choose to pool resources to protect wide-ranging large mammals by setting aside land, will the smaller, lesser-known but threatened species receive enough protection under the umbrella concept? Is the “ecosystem method”, which involves setting aside species-rich regions, rather than trying to save a single species the better choice regarding protection?

The purpose of this round table event is to bring together researchers and professionals, educators and students, skeptics and advocates, and all members of the public to learn about the current status of endangered species in tropical regions. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the research on endangered species, their main threats, key strategies for their protection, and suggestions for our next steps as conservationists and advocates for the global fauna. This could include technology, innovation, funding, ethical issues, and the public’s awareness and involvement.

Call for Abstracts:

The Center for Tropical Ecology and Conservation (CTEC) in the Environmental Studies Department at Antioch University is currently accepting proposals for presentations that address the following goals:

To give roundtable discussion attendees the opportunity to learn about different endangered species in the tropics and why endangered species and their protection is important
To explore methods of recovery conservation and the selection of which species to save incorporating different voices and perspectives
To explore the moral and ethical issues around endangered species recovery
To understand the limitations to protecting all endangered species due to personal bias, lack of consistent research, lack of funding, national reasons and several more
To hear from experts who have researched or reviewed current statuses on endangered species in the tropics

We welcome proposals in the following formats:

Short film • Oral Presentation • Posters/photography

Submission Guidelines:

For each submission (multiple submissions considered) please include:

The roundtable discussion goal you wish to address
A 300 word or less abstract outlining presentation goals
Complete contact information:  name, affiliation(s), address, phone number, and email
