Description

Lecture

The State of the Rockies Project presents an evening with author Mary Ellen Hannibal as she discusses her book “The Spine of the Continent,” as part of the 2013-14 Speakers Series. As climate change encroaches, animals and plants around the globe are having their habitats pulled out from under them. At the same time, human development has made islands out of even our largest nature reserves, stranding the biodiversity that lives within them. “The Spine of the Continent” discusses the most ambitious wildlife conservation effort ever undertaken: To create linked, protected areas extending from the Yukon to Mexico, the entire length of North America.
