A significant proportion of the Earth’s biodiversity has been erased, not from the world, but from our collective depiction of nature. Join us this Thursday, January 17, 2019, from 1-2 p.m. for a brown-bag lunch talk on compassionate conservation. The talk will take place in ASU Tempe campus, Life Sciences-E Wing, Room 244. Presenter: Arian Wallach My research combines ecological science with ethics to promote compassionate approaches to conservation. I aim 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. I collaborate with landholders to secure protection for wild animals from farming-related persecution, conservation culling, and commercial hunting. My 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.
