Community-Based Conservation

Dr. James Danoff-Burg

Caring for nature is among the greatest challenges we have, particularly when some of our largest and most charismatic animals such as the vaquita, an endangered porpoise, and rhinos are the victims of escalating rates of poaching. In this talk, Dr. James Danoff-Burg will discuss how genuinely engaging communities can help address poaching. Dr. Danoff-Burg is the director of conservation at The Living Desert in Palm Desert, California.
