M. Sanjayan, executive vice president and senior scientist at Conservation International, delivers the 18th annual Leopold Lecture, discussing ways wildlife and humans are coexisting in our modern world. Drawing on examples from his critically-acclaimed PBS television series EARTH A New Wild, Sanjayan will reveal the surprising ways wildlife and people can mutually benefit each other and why saving nature ultimately means saving ourselves.
A reception begins at 2:00 p.m. prior to the lecture.
Sanjayan is a leading global conservation scientist, writer and Emmy-nominated news contributor focused on the role of conservation in improving human well-being, wildlife and the environment. At Conservation International, he led the launch of Nature is Speaking, the campaign that shows nature doesn’t need people; people need nature.
