Some scientists have estimated that 10,000 species go extinct each year, which is up to 10,000 times higher than the background rate. What is mankind's impact, and how do we prevent the habitat loss that contributes to extinction?

Dr. Cassidy Johnson is your guide for "Extinction," a free public lecture hosted by Rice University's Graduate Liberal Studies program. You will also have a chance to meet Springer, one of the official “ambassador” toads for the Houston Toad Conservation program. Springer represents one of the many endangered species that are on the brink of extinction due to development.

Seating is limited, and RSVP is required. Use this form to register and receive a reminder closer to date.

If you can't attend the lecture, you can also watch on Facebook Live! The stream will begin on April 17 at 6:00 p.m. CDT on the Graduate Liberal Studies Facebook page.
