Thanks so much for posting.  I interviewed Craig for teachwithmovies.com once upon a time.  He's outstanding!  Really excited about the lecture and book.  It would be interesting to know if he has moved the line of moral consideration of interests outward from great apes, which is where he was back then....

Planet without Apes?
What It Means to be Human in the 21st Century

Sunday, Feb. 10
11 a.m. - in Hollywood only

     Planet Without Apes demands that we consider whether we can live with the consequences of wiping our closest relatives off the face of the Earth. Leading primatologist Dr. Craig Stanford, who will give the special Darwin Day Lecture, warns that extinction of the great apes – chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, and orangutans – threatens to become a reality within just a few human generations. We are on the verge of losing the last links to our evolutionary past, and to all the biological knowledge about ourselves that would die along with them. The crisis we face is tantamount to standing aside while our last extended family members vanish from the planet.

     Stanford sees great apes as not only intelligent but also possessed of a culture: both toolmakers and social beings capable of passing cultural knowledge down through generations. Compelled by his field research to take up the cause of conservation, he is unequivocal about where responsibility for extinction of these species lies. Our extermination campaign against the great apes has been as brutal as the genocide we have long practiced on one another.

     Stanford is an internationally renowned expert on animal behavior and human evolution. He is Professor of Biological Sciences and Anthropology at the University of Southern California and Director of the USC Jane Goodall Research Center. He has conducted field research on primates and other animals for more than 20 years in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Stanford is the author of 15 scientific and popular books and more than 120 scholarly articles and is a frequent guest on television and radio. His new book, Planet Without Apes, will be available for sale and signing by the author.

SPECIAL NOTE: The lecture will be followed with a special cake for all attendees to honor Charles Darwin born on Feb. 12, 1809, the same day and year as Abraham Lincoln.
