In our increasingly crowded and busy world, many of the wondrous living treasures that grace our Earth—from rhinos and polar bears to tropical orchids—are at risk of disappearing. Equally threatened are many of the beautiful and little known animals and plants that live in your state, your town, or, in this case, your local National Wildlife Refuge.

Bryan Windmiller will discuss Grassroots Wildlife Conservation’s mission to help preserve some of our rare and declining species and will specifically address current and possible future rare species conservation efforts in or around the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge.

Bryan Windmiller is the founder and executive director of Grassroots Wildlife Conservation, an NGO which integrates hands-on educational programs into the conservation of rare animal and plant species. He earned a PhD in biology and a Master's degree in Environmental Policy, both from Tufts University and has worked in various roles as a conservation biologist since 1987. Bryan’s wife, Dr. Alison Robbins, is a wildlife veterinarian, and she and Bryan shared an appointment as visiting scholars researching amphibian conservation in Australia in 2006-2007.
