The Southwest Environmental Center is excited to announce that we are co-hosting a series of webinars this fall focused on the critical need to address the biodiversity crisis in New Mexico and beyond, in partnership with the Office of the U.S. Senator Tom Udall, Species in Peril project at UNM, Office of Congresswoman Deb Haaland, and the New Mexico BioPark Society.
SWEC has been involved in planning this event for months, originally as a conference and then, when the pandemic hit, as an online symposium. The UNM Biodiversity Webinar Series—Fall 2020 is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required. The series will include four webinars, offered monthly starting on Monday, September 14th. SWEC’s executive director Kevin Bixby will moderate the last webinar in the series on December 3rd, addressing the need to transform state wildlife management to protect biodiversity in the U.S.
