Author and ecologist George Wuerthner will discuss the critical role that parklands and wildernesses play in the conservation of biodiversity. While some assert there is no need for protected areas, the overwhelming scientific evidence suggests that protected landscapes work better than any other land management to conserve Nature. The talk will discuss some of the critiques of protected areas and give examples from around the world of why protected areas are the best mechanism we have for sharing the Earth with other life.
