Ecologist Mac Post Presents “Borneo – A Disappearing Tropical Treasure” Friday, February 23

Mac Post, ecologist and naturalist, will preset “Borneo–A Disappearing Tropical Treasure” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, February 23.

Borneo, the third largest island in the world, is known for its complex tropical forests, dramatic coastlines, and rich biodiversity. The land and rivers teem with unique species, many of which are endangered. Ecologist Mac Post shares his travels in Borneo, viewing wildlife in the lowland tropical forests of northern Borneo. Photos from day and night hikes and river safaris capture the verdant vegetation and diverse wildlife, including the iconic orangutan, leopard cats, Sumatran rhinos, hornbills, and much more. Post will also present information about current deforestation pressures and efforts to preserve Borneo’s natural diversity.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, February 23 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.
