- Lic. Fernanda Jiménez Sauter spoke to 13 enthusiastic attendees about “Genetic resources and their importance in the international environmental movement ” a topic few of us had any previous understanding about but many of us had active interest in. Fernanda recommended a book written for the general public, The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert, for further information. To contact Fernanda directly to learn more, especially about ways to become involved in the movement to protect genetic diversity, write to her at email@example.com Nine of us took the option for lunch afterwards and continued our conversations.
