Wild Ways: Corridors of Life
March 18, 7 pm
Wild Ways: Corridors of Life explores the cutting edge of Conservation Biology to discover how the world’s parks and preserves can be connected and better function as the last enclaves of wild nature.
Wild Ways takes viewers around the world to some of the most dramatic natural areas on earth where conservation biologists are helping vanishing species with innovative solutions. We learn what elephants, lions, elk, grizzly bears, tigers, and jaguars need: room to roam, neighboring populations for genetic diversity, and connected ecosystems that allow migration and adaptation to a changing climate.
Following the film, David Paulson of Mass Wildlife will discuss the state’s Linking Landscapes program and efforts to accommodate wildlife, especially around major roadways. He’ll be joined by Bob Wilber, director of Land Conservation for Mass Audubon, the largest owner of private conservation land in Massachusetts. WCAI’s Heather Goldstone will moderate the panel.
