April 8, 2019 Presenter: Nancy Ferguson Robinson, Giant Panda Conservation and the Global Goals for Sustainability”

2019/03/25

Nancy Ferguson Robinson will join us to discuss Giant Panda conservation and her role as an envoy to the United Nations Development Programme. Giant Panda conservation has faced long odds due to many factors including panda biology, habitat loss, and captive care practices which were less than optimal. In January 2017, Nancy traveled to China to learn about the challenges of Giant Panda conservation, spend time with Giant Pandas and scientists and the caregivers working to save the species, and understand the role of Giant Pandas as ambassadors of hope for the Global Goals.  Join us for a conversation about the Global Goals and the relationship between human needs, global partnerships, and species survival.

Nancy Ferguson Robinson is currently the Director of Counseling Services for Miami University’s Middletown Regional Campus and is a Visiting Faculty member in Social Work.  From 1993-2004 Nancy’s work focused upon good health, gender equality and violence prevention as director of a regional rape crisis center, which also provided web-based consultation and information for people from 92 nations.   Her background includes consultation for the Peace Corps and Ministry of Health in Dominica, West Indies.   Nancy also worked as a naturalist educator/program Leader at the Cincinnati Zoo for six years, teaching adult and child visitors about wildlife conservation, biodiversity and animal adaptations.
