Habitat Loss and Biodiversity with Dr. LaReesa Wolfenbarger and Dr. Chris Helzer
May 23 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm


Habitat Loss and Biodiversity with Dr. LaReesa Wolfenbarger and Dr. Chris Helzer

WHEN: Tuesday, May 23rd from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: UNO College of Public Affairs and Community
Service (6320 Maverick Plaza)

Habitat loss is the number one reason why species go extinct, and thus poses a major threat to biodiversity on our planet. When humans convert wild areas for agriculture, forestry, urban development, or water projects (including dams, hydropower, and irrigation), they reduce or eliminate its usefulness as a habitat for the other species that live there. Dr. LaReesa Wolfenbarger and Dr. Chris Helzer are two of Nebraska’s top experts on biodiversity and habitat loss, so you won’t want to miss this event!

Space is limited! Register here.
