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.
This event will be livestreamed through YouTube Channel. Advanced registration is required, and the link to the livestream will be sent out via email on the day of the event. The livestream will begin at 7 p.m.
