Conserving Rare Plants in the Internet Age
with Joel Dunn, President and CEO of Chesapeake Conservancy
Many rare plant species need large, contiguous protected areas to sustain their populations and adapt to changing conditions. However, increased land development, forest fragmentation, and climate change threaten endangered plants with extinction. Recognizing this urgent need, Joel Dunn will discuss how to integrate “internet age” technology with funding and land preservation partnerships to revolutionize the conservation movement and save rare plants on a landscape scale.
