Kicking off the New Year with a 30×30 Progress Update with Dr. Enric Sala and Craig Hoover

On this special edition of the First Friday Webinar Series, held on Friday, January 7, we welcomed special guests Enric Sala, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, and Craig Hoover, Executive Vice President of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, for an update and discussion of 30×30.

During the webinar, Enric reflects back on a presentation he made during the 2019 AZA Annual Conference and then speaks about the progress made, as well as the opportunities and challenges ahead.  Craig addresses the support of AZA for 30×30, and the important role that zoos and aquariums, as well as science museums, can play within the movement.  Their comments sparked an excellent discussion that went well beyond the usual 30 minutes…be sure to watch through the end! A recording of the webinar can be found here.
