Senator Gaylord Nelson declared April 22, 1970 the first Earth Day before most of the world had yet begun to think that the Earth was a limited resource that humans were using up. In 40 years, many idealistic youth from the early 70s have diverted their attention or just wrung their hands about the issues facing our planet. Kirk Lohman caught fire.
He pursued all three of his degrees at the University of Missouri-Columbia. His BA was in biology, got his law degree in 1980, and eight years later finished his Ph.D. in fisheries and wildlife. He is now one of the leading figures in the US on the subject of factors leading to the abundance or scarcity of amphibian and reptile populations and he is does his work with the US Geological Service out of LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
