General Interest Article
Over a year ago I received a letter asking if I would serve on an advisory committee to the Academy committee on conservation. The gist of the letter was that Academy members outside the fields usually associated with conservation might be helpful to the regular committee in an advisory capacity. If the aim was to secure members who were woefully ignorant of the field of conservation, mine was a happy choice for membership on the advisory committee. I so informed the secretary and was accepted anyway, so at least my conscience was clear. I felt that at least I could learn something whether or not I contributed positively to the Academy program on conservation.
