NY Times Article discussess Conflicts of Novel and Traditional Conservation Strategies

This article has been making the rounds lately, but for those that haven’t had a chance to read it.

In anticipation of Climate Change, some have been proposing new approaches in conservation such as moving species to new ranges, actively managing wilderness areas, and using non-natives  as surrogates for extinct species.  However, others prefer to focus on protecting wilderness and classical restoration that keeps ecosystems as they were hundreds of years ago.

This article from the NY Times does a decent job discussing this divide.

 Thanks to Gabby Lynch for suggesting it as a BLN Blog Post.
