Atlanta Botanical Garden says
Join a free Calhoun Lecture presented by Mark Mandica, Amphibian Conservation Scientist, to learn about amphibians in our future and explore why it is important to protect them.

For the past 25 years, amphibians have been disappearing globally from developed and pristine environments. Scientists have identified multiple factors contributing to these declines leading to a multifaceted approach to address the amphibian decline phenomenon. The Garden is home to the longest running Amphibian Conservation Program in the country and has worked with other institutions to help imperiled amphibian species in Latin America and in our native South Eastern US.

Presenter Mark Mandica has worked with global and native conservation efforts for the past 16 years and will describe to attendees why it is important to protect amphibians and the efforts that aim to conserve these incredible creatures.

This lecture is a part of the Atlanta Science Festival, which is a week-long celebration of local science and technology held all over Atlanta from March 21 - 28.

The Calhoun lecture is made possible through the generous support of the family of Marion Peel Calhoun.
