Nature Needs Half

Jul 27, 2015

For centuries, humans have used technology to alter the planet, with dramatic consequences for the environment. Some think technology can also be used to manage our way out of these problems. It’s an approach that places humans at the center of everything. But conservationist Harvey Locke builds his work around a different idea: we do not control the world; we are part of it. Locke advocates a "wiser" relationship with nature, and Monday, he joins Doug in studio to talk about his goal to conserve half the world’s land and water. (Rebroadcast)

Harvey Locke is a conservationist, writer, and photographer. He's founder of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative and a partner with the Nature Needs Half initiative.

Locke is also contributer to the book Protecting the Wild: Parks and Wilderness, the Foundation for Conservation. [Indiebound|Amazon]
