Sometimes in life, it’s the little things that make all the difference. That’s true in nature, too.
The web of life is beautiful and complex. From the “belly plants” forming a miniature forest to feed the food web and the myriad of microscopic organisms holding our soil together to the tiny midge flies pollinating the cocoa trees that make our chocolate – everything, regardless of size, has a job to do and a niche to fill.
Come celebrate the diversity of life with us and discover the many ways we depend on the itty-bitty organisms we often don’t even realize are there. Hear about cutting-edge technology being used to understand these organisms and the relationships between them and learn more about what you can do to help conserve this wondrous world.
This year’s recipient of the John C. Pritzlaff Conservation Award is Shirley C. Tucker, Ph.D. We are privileged to collaborate with Dr. Tucker and take great pleasure in presenting her with this award. Her contributions to biological diversity and humanity through her research and philanthropic efforts, coupled with her commitment to a simple and sustainable lifestyle, serve as a source of inspiration for us all.
