Conservation Symposium

In ecology, “edge effects” are changes to species populations and natural communities that occur where two habitats meet. Throughout our planet’s history, these edges have formed through natural means. But human activity has begun to outpace these processes, creating more edges and leaving fewer habitats. Cleveland Museum of Natural History's 2016 Conservation Symposium explores life “on the edge”—how human activity is pushing up against the natural world, and what’s being done to push back. Join us for informative talks by experts on invasive non-native species, habitat restoration and preservation, and endangered species.
