Embracing a ‘Half-Wild’ Planet

For decades, our goal has been to preserve nature in its pristine, pre-human state. But many scientists now see this as outdated, and science writer Emma Marris agrees: As humans change every centimeter of Earth, she says, our strategies for saving nature must change. Marris, author of Rambunctious Garden, argues it’s time to embrace the concept of a global, half-wild planet, a hybrid of nature and human management—tended by us. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
