Green Neighbors Program

The Clark County Green Neighbors Program was developed and is maintained by Clark County Solid Waste and Environmental Outreach to assist citizens with developing more sustainable lifestyles and building a strong environmental community in Clark County. Solid waste regional planning and programs are a cooperative effort of Battle Ground, Camas, Clark County, La Center, Ridgefield, Vancouver, Washougal, and Yacolt. Funding for this project provided by a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology.

Nature Night: Saving Amphibians and Reptiles in the Midst of Earth’s Sixth Extinction

Tuesday, December 13, 2016, 07:00pm - 08:30pm
 

Reptiles and amphibians have thrived on planet Earth for 300 million to 400 million years, but now nearly one-third of them are at risk of extinction. Populations of frogs, salamanders, and turtles of Oregon, including Red-legged Frog, Pacific Giant Salamander, and Western Pond Turtle, are rapidly declining. From local wetlands to tropical rainforests, researchers are scrambling to save these fascinating animals from disappearing due to ever increasing threats such as habitat loss and pollution. Tierra Curry from the Center for Biological Diversity will discuss local species and the national effort to gain policy protections for our country’s most imperiled amphibians and reptile species. Under current trends, it is estimated that 10% to 30% of all species on Earth will be in danger of going extinct by 2050. With escalating loss of plant and animal species and increasing temperatures around the world, scientists believe that humans have ushered in a new geologic epoch—the Anthropocene. Tierra will highlight recent extinctions and the national efforts using science, policy, and advocacy to protect endangered species and the habitat and conditions they need to survive. Tierra Curry is a senior scientist and campaign director at the Center for Biological Diversity, working to protect endangered species and garner support for the Endangered Species Act across the country. Prior to working on policy, Tierra worked as an amphibian biologist in the forests and wetlands of the Pacific Northwest. She cut her teeth as an activist fighting surface coal mining in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky, where she first fell in love with frogs and wild things.
