The lead scientist for The Nature Conservancy will speak at BYU on Thursday at noon.
M. Sanjayan will teach students about "Poverty and Conservation" in 456 of the Martin Building.
Sanjayan has been published in Science, Nature and Conservation Biology for his scientific work. Publications from Delta Airline's Sky Magazine to The New York Times have also covered his work.
The lecture is the first in a series sponsored by a group of BYU faculty who launched the Environmental Ethics Initiative. The group's goal is to spread awareness about modern environmental problems.
Sanjayan's work and expertise has also been showcased on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and The Today Show for his research about how poverty and environmental problems are linked. His most recent efforts included hosting and narrating a four-part series on energy on the Discovery Channel titled "Powering the Future."
