Abstract

Harvey Webster is the Director of Wildlife Resources at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History (CMNH). Webster provides the history of CMNH and highlights the importance of the institution to northeast Ohio, nationally, and globally. From the experience he gained studying endangered animal species; specifically birds of prey, Webster provides vital information on the effects that repetitive human alterations to the natural landscape have on the environment. Webster contends that only once humans realize that they are connected to the multitude of life-systems on earth, can programs of sustainability be implemented toward the formation of a greener future. According to Webster, the CMNH, expresses these views as well through their exhibits. The CMNH presents for all individuals a scientific understanding of evolution, conservation, preservation and how to use those concepts to build a better sustainable future.
