Biodiversity Days are focused on cultivating awareness and promoting understanding as a key foundation for engagement, action and inspired care of our planet. This year, on April 24th and 25th, Edward O. Wilson and other notable scientists and conservationists convened at Duke University for two full days of public lectures and panel discussions addressing the most important conservation issues and restoration efforts of our time. Photographs from this event are archived below.
