Carlos Martinez del Rio of the University of Wyoming’s Biodiversity Institute presents the next Draper Natural History Museum Lunchtime Expedition at the Draper Natural History Museum on Thursday at 12:15 p.m. in Cody, Wyo.

“From what we eat for breakfast to the domestic, feral, and wild organisms that grace Wyoming’s extraordinary landscapes,” he says, “biological diversity supports our lives and our livelihoods.”

The talk is titled Biodiversity Inside and Out: A Look at Life’s Richness from Wyoming’s Perspective. In it Martinez del Rio explores the variety of Wyoming’s animals and the webs that connect them. 

The monthly Lunchtime Expedition lecture series takes place in the Center’s Coe Auditorium and is free to the public.

On Aug. 1 Dan Thompson will discuss cougar ecology in Wyoming.
