Dan Janzen and Winnie Hallwachs just announced a new species of ACG butterfly being described by Nick Grishin and John Burns, in honor of Susan and Kenton Miller, at our recent reception in Washington DC, generously hosted by Costa Rican Ambassador Muni Figueres. Susan is a great friend of GDFCF and of tropical biodiversity big and small. Her late husband Kenton Miller was the pioneering tropical conservation biologist who in the late 1960's facilitated the founding of Area de Conservacion Guanacaste in its first edition, as Parque Nacional Santa Rosa. Susan is pictured here with Jemadia suekentonmiller.
