Alabama’s striking intersection of biological and human history, cultural heritage, and diversity make it an important Place for a Half-Earth Future.
The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and its Half-Earth Project traveled to Dr. Wilson’s home state for a live online conversation. We heard about a new generation being trained in ground-breaking forest research methodology. We also heard how–in an area the size of New Jersey–conservation is being promoted at a large scale and in novel ways while celebrating and supporting people and their needs.
E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation Chief Marketing Officer Joel R. Johnson moderated a panel conversation with President & CEO Paula Ehrlich and Principal Conservation Science Advisor Bill Finch, along with special guest partners: Patience Knight of the Paint Rock Forest Research Center and Phillip Howard of the Alabama River Diversity Network.
