Butterflies and Their People

April 4, 2016, 7:00 PM

Free

Ellen Sharp, director of the Butterflies and Their People Project at the Cerro Pelon Butterfly Reserve, Mexico, will discuss competing stakes in transnational efforts to protect the annual monarch butterfly migration. Despite well-meaning efforts to foster development projects that will keep forest-dwelling Mexicans from logging in the butterfly sanctuaries, communications between scientists, citizen-scientists, transnational NGOs, and local populations are fragile. Sharp has been living on the reserve to better understand how multilayered efforts at development and conservation are experienced on the ground.
