FHSU's Sternberg Museum to feature speaker on Endangered Species Act

Fort Hays State University's Sternberg Museum of Natural History will feature a presentation by Dr. Elmer J. Finck, chair of and professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at FHSU.

Finck's presentation is titled "The Threatened and Endangered Species Act: The Good, Bad, and Ugly." He will concentrate on how the Threatened and Endangered Species Act of 1973 has affected our ability to protect species. He will discuss how the act has worked in some instances and how it has not worked in others, and he will consider the importance of the act and what the future may hold for conservation of biodiversity.

The program begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6, at the Sternberg Museum. Cost for the program is $1
per person. Admission is free for museum members.
