Fighting extinction

Don Barger, Senior Regional Director of the National Parks Conservation Association, discusses Rewilding the world: dispatches from the conservation revolution by Caroline Fraser, the first definitive account of a visionary campaign to confront the looming extinction of thousands of species. (Recorded August 25, 2010)

Rewilding aims to save species by restoring habitats, reviving migration corridors, and brokering peace between people and predators. Traveling with wildlife biologists and conservationists, Fraser reports on the vast projects that are turning Europe’s former Iron Curtain into a greenbelt, creating trans-frontier Peace Parks to renew elephant routes throughout Africa, and linking protected areas from the Yukon to Mexico and beyond.
