We are losing natural areas at an unprecedented rate. Many believe the alarming number of species being lost will lead to our planet's sixth mass extinction--and the next 40 or 50 years may be the most crucial window in human history. The science and research taking place at the Florida Museum plays a crucial role in helping society face and solve these worldwide challenges. It’s not just science for science’s sake, but science to help us create a better world in which to live.
