The 2024 UCLA La Kretz Center Public Lecture

California has more native species than any state in the US, and many of them are endangered. As the US Endangered Species Act turned 50 years old, it’s time to ask how the ESA is working for our state’s biodiversity.

Please join us on Saturday, September 28th as we hear from several leading voices on endangered species listing and recovery to learn, firsthand, what is working best, what is not, and how we can improve California conservation actions in the future.

Guest speakers include:

Dr. Cat Darst, (Classification Coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Pacific Southwest Region)
Dr. Scott Morrison, (Director of Conservation Programs & Science for the California Nature Conservancy)
Dr. H. Bradley Shaffer, (Distinguished Professor at UCLA and Director of the La Kretz Center for California Conservation Science)

Afterwards, the event will continue on with refreshments and a chance to meet our speakers and current La Kretz Center postdocs to see the work we’re doing to promote California conservation science.
