Impending cut to science at the Field Museum

December 21, 2012

This is one of many calls for support from the Field Museum:

"Hi everyone,
Science at the Field Museum is under threat (http://www.nature.com/news/chicago-s-field-museum-cuts-back-on-science-1.12105) and I'd like to ask for your support.
The process is underway that would enable the museum to fire tenured curators and the magnitude of the announced cuts could drastically change the academic face of this institution forever. There is a petition on-line whose goal is to get the message to our Board and administration about the drastic implications of these cuts. Consider signing it to protect science at this great institution.

Thanks,
John Bates
