Don Melnick 316

Dr. Don Melnick, Thomas Hunt Morgan Professor of Conservation Biology, was elected to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in March 2019. The CFR is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization dedicated to being a resource for public sector, private sector, and civil society leaders in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries. Professor Melnick, who has advised heads-of-state, ministers of foreign affairs, and minsters of environment, as well as the UN, hopes to use his CFR membership to further efforts to bring environmental science into national and international policy discussions.


Prof. Marina Cords and her “Behavior Bio Living Primates” class took a trip to the Bronx Zoo and had a delightful exchange with the resident Gibbon apes.
