No Species Left Behind: Using Science to Conserve Wildlife Corridors

Talks/Lectures
What happens when highways and urban development fragment natural habitat? How do these changes affect the migration, range expansion, and mating habits of wildlife? It’s estimated that roughly one in five animal and plant species in the U.S. are at risk of extinction due to habitat loss and fragmentation. Could wildlife corridors be the answer? Dr. Paul Beier, a Regents’ Professor of Conservation Biology at NAU, specializes in science-based design of wildlife corridors for conserving these passages and explains how regional maps of wildlife corridors have helped raise awareness of wildlife crossings, including projects like the Catalina-Tortolita corridor, which provides habitat linkage for thousands of animals near Tucson.

Major League Legends: Hank Aaron

Film
Henry "Hank" Aaron didn't aim to become Major League Baseball's home run king, nor did he intend to grow into a Civil Rights icon. But because of his remarkable strength, both in power and in character, he became both. This is the story of Hammerin' Hank, a victim of discrimination and bigotry his whole life, from his Alabama upbringing through
his days in the Negro League and notably during his quest to capture Babe Ruth's home run crown. Through it all, he stayed focused, stood up to every challenge, and 755 big
swings later, became a legend. A Smithsonian Channel Film.
