Dr. Gabriela Chavarria is a bee specialist. She came to the United States 30 years ago to do her PhD on tropical bumblebees. Gabriela was interested in conservation policy, so she joined the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to learn about how foundations invest their resources. She worked in the advocacy world for several NGOs, then joined the U.S. government, where she not only worked on conservation policy but became a wildlife forensic scientist fighting the illegal trafficking of tropical hardwoods. Gabriela joined the Museum in January 2018 to support and advocate for basic scientific research and the scientific collections.

Endangered Species Day, which falls on May 15th, is an important opportunity for people to celebrate and learn about endangered wildlife. During this day we recognize the national conservation efforts to protect our nation's endangered species and their habitats.The first step to protecting endangered species is learning about how interesting and important they are. Our natural world provides us with many indispensable services including clean air and water, food and medicinal sources, commercial, aesthetic and recreational benefits. Today I will introduced you to a species that was rescued from becoming extinct and its breeding center is here in Colorado. I am happy to introduce you to the Black Footed Ferret.
