E. O. Wilson Biophilia Center
About this gallery
The E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is an environmental education facility serving students, teachers and professional audiences. The Center is nestled in the Longleaf Pine ecosystem, which is considered the 6th most biodiverse area in the continental U.S. and less than 2% of it remains intact today. As such, it is the perfect place to educate students on the importance of biodiversity and to encourage conservation, preservation and restoration. This ecological “hot-spot” is available as a gathering place where local and regional scientists can conduct ecological research and participate in symposia that disseminates this research to the public.
