As scientists declare our time to be the Anthropocene epoch, the search for mechanisms and examples to aid in biodiversity conservation has acquired new urgency. There is, however, a perceptible shift in our collective ability to realize the value of human-dominated landscapes as potential wildlife habitat. This shift has accelerated efforts in areas that would not normally receive attention from conservationists. Dr. K. S. Gopi Sundar, Director at Sarusscape Program International Crane Foundation, will present unlikely recent discoveries from South Asian agricultural landscapes in order to revisit current and past assumptions regarding “wildlife habitat,” and the negativity that surrounds areas with high population densities.
