Supporting Biodiversity Means Seeing Beauty In The Ugly

The Field Museum’s Emily Graslie and Robb Telfer are on a mission to redefine natural beauty. 

While nature lovers are always thrilled to see a fox or a deer, they say it's also important to get excited about ugly flora and fauna. 

Graslie and Telfer will present at the Wild Things Conference at the UIC Forum. We talk with them about what to expect from the conference about getting to know our natural world.
