Human success has come at the expense of many nonhuman species. Due to human actions, the extinction rate is estimated to be 1,000 times higher than the natural “background” rate. Some local, native species, such as the Oregon spotted frog, are threatened. How do we feel about the permanent loss of countless other species and how should we care for those that remain? Join this curator-facilitated discussion to express your thoughts and hear the perspectives of others in the community.
