Miistakis Monday: Do We Need a Definition of Biodiversity Conservation?

June 8, 2020 - 12:00pm

From the Miistatkis Institute:

What does biodiversity conservation mean? We can define biodiversity, and we can catalogue the conservation mechanisms (parks, laws, education, research, advocacy, etc.), but how do we assess if a specific activity will conserve biodiversity. Join us a for a panel discussion about a proposed way of describing biodiversity conservation, and whether this is even needed.

Our panelists are:

  • Brendan Hemens, Government of Alberta
  • Bryanne Aylward, Nature Conservancy of Canada
  • Chris Manderson, City of Calgary
  • Danah Duke, Miistakis Institute
  • Dave Poulton, Alberta Land Institute
  • Jason Unger, Environmental Law Centre
  • Guy Greenaway (presenter & moderator), Miistakis Institute

You can read the proposed description this discussion is based on here.
