We are excited to be hosting Dr. Alejandro Frid, lab colleague and science coordinator for the Central Coast Indigenous Resource Alliance, for a research talk at UVic this coming Monday January 12. Alejandro will be speaking about biodiversity, indigenous rights, and the dynamically-shifting climate of our planet.
Monday January 12th, 2014
1:00pm – 2:30pm
David Strong Building C103
University of Victoria
We also encourage people to check out Alejandro’s new book Storms and Stillness; an ecologist’s search for optimism through letters to his young daughter and its visual companion website. Storms and Stillness is a search for optimism amidst the climate change and biodiversity crises, as told by Alejandro (who I consider a great leader for ecologists and conservation scientists) writing letters to his young daughter. Weaving science and stories of connection to Earth, this work of non-fiction steers readers towards imagining their own role in preserving the vibrancy of our planet.
