In an article published February 1, the influential online environmental science and conservation news site, Mongabay, profiled SavingSpecies’ highly effective and efficient approach to tackling deforestation, with the ultimate goal of achieving worldwide conservation goals for biodiversity and endangered species. Entitled “Next big idea in forest conservation? Connecting forest fragments”, the article highlights SavingSpecies’ laser focus on identifying and restoring forest fragments to reconnect fragile habitats, and thereby improving conservation prospects for countless species.
The interview was part of Mongabay’s series on Innovation in Tropical Forest Conservation which “aims to highlight solutions to the crisis through short interviews with some of the world’s leading conservation scientists, practitioners, and thinkers about new and emerging approaches to conservation.”
Dr. Stuart Pimm was particularly pleased to share the good news that those who support SavingSpecies already know: with sound science, the latest spatial and GIS technology, and local empowerment, together we can fight species extinction and heal Earth’s forests.
