The Future of Conservation: Lessons From the Past and the Need for Rewilding of Ecosystems

April 17, 2017

One of the most influential ecologists in the world, Professor Emeritus Anthony R.E. Sinclair’s research has included long-term studies of the Serengeti—nearly 50 years of data, and counting—to projects in Africa, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. He has explored everything from the regulation of mammal populations to the causes of migration and its consequences on ecosystem processes. His lecture here addresses the vital importance of rewilding ecosystems to preserve biodiversity and the stability of natural systems around the globe.
