Join us for the premiere of the University Libraries sustainability themed movie series Monday, February 19 at 6pm in 305 Capen (inside Silverman Library). Gambling on Extinction (2015, 52 min, documentary), directed by Jakob Kneser, depicts illegal wildlife trade in Africa and Asia. This is a free event open to everyone.
A ...war against science and nature is being waged. Populations of elephants, rhinos and other animals are declining at rates that will wipe them out very soon. Humans who value ivory and horns are driving this cruel extinction. This movie is for all but the totally heartless.
A brief introduction precedes the movie and a discussion after the movie will be led by Jim Gordon, chair of UB’s Professional Staff Alternative Transportation Subcomittee. This movie is presented by University Libraries with co-sponsorship from UB’s Professional Staff Sustainable Living Committee, UB’s Sustainability office, and University Libraries Professional Executive Committee.
