Presented in an easy-to understand format, talks by experts in their fields are scheduled from 11:00 am to 12 noon at the LBIF's main building in Loveladies, NJ, at 120 Long Beach Boulevard. These lectures which are supported by a grant from Clean Air-Cool Planet (www.cleanair-coolplanet.org) are scheduled each Saturday through April 7 at the LBIF.
On Saturday, February 11, Frank Zalvino a five year volunteer with Defenders of Wildlife (www.defenders.org) and also with The Alaska Wilderness League (www.alaskawild.org), will speak about the protection of native animal and plant species in their natural communities, including the threats of extinction for many of our states most at-risk residents. Frank is in charge of the volunteer teams in New Jersey and he is well qualified to detail Defenders of Wildlife's work in protecting and restoring native wildlife, safeguarding habitats, resolving conflicts and educating and mobilizing the public.
The Alaska Wilderness League's mission is to lead the effort to preserve Alaska's wild lands and waters by engaging citizens and decision makers. To that end, Frank will also discuss how oil drilling in New Jersey and in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska could have an affect on each other.

Call of Life: Facing the Mass Extinction
Description: All over the world species are becoming extinct at an astonishing rate, from 1,000 to 10,000 times faster than normal. The loss of biodiversity has become so severe that scientists are calling it a mass extinction event. This documentary investigates the growing threat to Earth’s life support systems from this unprecedented loss of biodiversity. Through interviews with leading scientists, psychologists, anthropologists, philosophers, and indigenous and religious leaders, the film explores the causes, the scope, and the potential effects of the mass extinction, but also looks beyond the immediate causes of the crisis to consider how our cultural and economic systems, along with deep-seated psychological and behavioral patterns, have allowed this situation to develop, continue to reinforce it, and even determine our response to it.
