Stan Temple: A life saving threatened species

by Terry Devitt, University Communications

It is an icy winter Monday, and Stan Temple, for the sake of a shortened semester, must cram two lectures into one for the 300 students in his iconic Extinction of Species course. The combined topic is nongovernmental (NGOs) and governmental organizations. The lecture has to be bare bones, stripped of the fantastic stories of a lifetime, fleshy yarns that illustrate the successes, failures and foibles of the groups that seek to influence the policies and practices of environmental conservation.
