2020-02-11 19:00:00 2020-02-11 20:30:00 America/Vancouver Preventing Species Extinction on the Front Line of Conservation SPEAKER: Greg Howald, Island Conservation. The world is facing unprecedented change with climate change, species extinctions and mass migrations. The urgency to do something to slow or stop the pace of change is high. Island communities and ecosystems are facing some of the greatest risks, yet there is hope to prevent species extinctions, and benefit people and communities. Islands are natural laboratories that we can learn from as we move into a new era of conservation. Gregg will share the stories of his direct experience in the field from the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, the Pacific Northwest to California, and into the tropical Pacific, from Hawaii, Micronesia, New Zealand, and the Galapagos Islands and further afar into the Mediterranean. Gregg Howald is a dedicated conservationist with over 25 years of applied experience in conservation on island ecosystems from the high latitudes to the deep tropics. Working in Global Affairs for Island Conservation, a global NGO, he is responsible for integrating the science of conservation into global policy by leveraging his long-time success in field conservation. He is an 18-year Okanagan resident, raising a family in Kelowna, and spends his free time hiking and exploring the region when not on islands.
