Community and Justice: Urban Conservation and Human-Wildlife Coexistence June 9 from PacSci

Community and Justice: Urban Conservation and Human-Wildlife Coexistence

Wildlife are finding remarkable ways to persist in cities, redefining what we consider to be nature. They also teach us how the infrastructure we build for ourselves forge an environment for innovation.

In this presentation, Urban Ecologist Dr. Chris Schell will discuss the patterns and processes by which wildlife are adapting to cities. Learn how carnivores like coyotes and raccoons have become sentinels of urban environments, helping reframe how we consider our cities as viable greenspaces, and come together as a community around their amazing stories. Their narratives provide another lens on how we can be effective environmental stewards through activism and social justice that dismantles structural racism and classism.
