Nature’s Best Hope

Doug Tallamy, Professor of Entomology and Wildlife Biology, University of Delaware
Headlines about the impending extinction of one million species worldwide are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. Such losses are not inevitable. Doug Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can— and must take— to reverse declining biodiversity; and he will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.
