Photography and Conservation

What role does photography play in conservation? Iconic images of national parks, wildlife, rivers, people enjoying nature grace the covers of magazines and websites all around us. But do they change people's minds? Garth Lenz has his own thoughts on this matter. He has been a nature photographer for decades based in British Columbia, Canada. His work has chronicled the industrialization of nature, showcasing the consequences that our modern society has on nature. He has traveled the world documenting these changes. His latest work has focused attention on the Tar Sands Development in Alberta, Canada, for which he has garnered international acclaim. His previous work has been showcased in prominent magazines and newspapers and he has won dozens of awards for his exceptional work. His work can be seen at his website: garthlenz.com.

Where Wilderness Went Wrong - A Conversation With Scott Silver

Wilderness represents the zenith of land protection in the United States. Fifty years after the passage of the Wilderness Act in 1964 wilderness continues to hold a vaulted position in the conservation community. But does wilderness in the United States meet the standards set forth in that historic act? Scott Silver, founder and executive director of Wild Wilderness, does not think so. In this podcast, Silver talks about the ways in which wilderness, in his view, has been undermined by both those seeking to commodify wilderness, and those in the conservation community who purportedly serve to protect and expand wilderness but instead have undermined its viability.

Where Wilderness Went Wrong - A Conversation With Scott Silver

Discussing the status of wilderness in the 21st century

Welcome to the Nature and Society podcast, a forum to discuss the complex relationship between humans and nature hosted by Brian Petersen. The podcast features scholars, activists, and artists whose work and thinking addresses topics including wilderness in the 21st century, public land management and use, environmental controversies, the consequences nature has for the human condition, and more. For this inaugural episode I talk with George Nickas, the executive director of Wilderness Watch, a national citizens' organization that works to protect the National Wilderness Preservation System and to ensure the wild character of our nation’s existing Wilderness areas are protected and preserved.
