A significant proportion of the Earth’s biodiversity has been erased, not from the world, but from our collective depiction of nature. Join us for a brown-bag lunch talk on compassionate conservation.
Arian Wallach's research combines ecological science with ethics to promote compassionate approaches to conservation. she aims to develop, apply, and promote non-lethal and non-invasive strategies that enable the persistence of species without causing intentional suffering to individual wild animals. She collaborate with landholders to secure protection for wild animals from farming-related persecution, conservation culling, and commercial hunting. Wallach's ecological research explores how human-assisted redistribution of species promotes biodiversity in the Anthropocene, and how apex predators enable coexistence between native and introduced species.
