Join these two outspoken NM conservation advocates, activists, and change-makers as they discuss answers to the questions below and to your questions as well! Kevin is Executive Director of the Southwest Environmental Center and Gabe is a city councilor in Las Cruces and the founder of the Nuestra Tierra Conservation Project – providing communities of color with sustainable opportunities for engagement, access and education around public lands and waters (complete bios at https://sfct.org/online-chats/).
- We are facing a global extinction crisis unlike any other time in history. How are humans impacting this loss and what will humankind lose if it continues?
- Specifically, what is the toll on native wildlife due to climate change, human behavior, and loss of habitat? Does protecting more land translate into protecting wildlife biodiversity?
- What is rewilding, how does it fit in the global 30 x 30 initiative, and how important are local conservation efforts to the bigger picture?
- How can local conservation help? And if social change is at the heart of the answers we seek, how does a long overdue focus on diversity and inclusion help protect the environment and all living beings who depend on it?
