On September 14, 2021, Meg Lowman appeared on a Livestream event called Life in the Trees: Discovering the Eighth Continent with WSKG Public Media | Science Pub.
Did you know that more than 50 percent of the world’s land-based creatures live in treetops? Yet scientists have classified less than 10 percent of this biodiversity. Come hear stories that will inspire us to think more urgently about forest conservation, help save big trees, and ultimately, keep our planet healthy.
Dr. Margaret “Canopy Meg” Lowman shares tales from her adventurous childhood as a collector of wildflowers, nests, snake skins, and other natural collectibles, which led her to becoming one of the world’s first arbornauts. Whereas astronauts explore outer space, arbornauts investigate treetops. Meg discussed forest canopies throughout the world and show us how to help them thrive.
