To Interpret and Conserve: After 100 Years, What Has the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Come to Mean?
As part of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s centennial celebration, the Lab’s director, John Fitzpatrick, will explore what has changed, what has flourished, and what’s to come within the unique Lab founded by Arthur Allen and colleagues in 1915. Moving beyond history, this seminar looks ahead to the challenges faced by the Lab and everyone who cares about nature. We must regard our first hundred years as a “trial run”—an experiment that has proven itself worthy of another hundred-year run, but this time the expectations—our measures of success—will be far more stringent, and the stakes are far higher as we work to help save the earth’s birds and biodiversity.
