Maura R. O’Connor, a bright and compassionate humanitarian, ecologist and journalist talks with Jeff Carreira about some of the philosophical questions that she raises in her book Resurrection Science: Conservation, De-Extinction and the Precarious Future of Wild Things. In this discussion you will hear a fresh voice calling into question many of our common assumption about ecological conservation and environmentalism.
Underlying the entire conversation is a deep recognition that there is no way to be uninvolved. Through her investigation into various efforts to save species from extinction Maura shows us just how complex our involvement with the world actually is.
I am so happy to offer you this opportunity hear from from a young woman who will undoubtedly make a significant contribution to our understanding of ourselves in the years and decades to come.
