Loyola press release - March 16, 2006
Peter Raven, Ph.D., director of the Missouri Botanical Garden, will present “Poverty, Disaster, and Sustainability: How do we Move Forward,” a talk at Loyola University New Orleans, on Thursday, March 23, 2006, at 7 p.m. in Nunemaker Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Raven is an internationally-renowned conservationist who focuses on global environmental issues, particularly issues on the human condition in this world of limited resources. He is well-known for his theories on the increasing extinction of species worldwide, and has coined the phrase “6th extinction,” to describe this phenomenon, which he says is brought about by the mushrooming human population, human ignorance, and commerce.
