Custodians of our Ecosystems: Women, Raptors, and Unsettling Words

November 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-4

Presented by Diane Husic

Scientists and writers like Rachel Carson, Theo Colburn, and Sandra Steingraber have called attention to environmental pollutants and the negative impacts that they have on ecosystems and human health. Because of biomagnification and as apex predators, raptors (birds of prey) are also bioindicators of problems in our environment. Oddly, these harbingers – strong, intelligent women, birds of prey, and words that tell the story of how we are destroying our home (Earth) – make some people uncomfortable. But they are the very things we need to keep our ecosystems healthy and functioning.

In this presentation, Dr. Diane Husic of Moravian College will discuss some of these ideas and explore the question of “What science, words, metaphors and other expressions are needed to address today’s environmental challenges?”
