A New Approach to Conservation That Starts in Your Yard

A New Approach to Conservation That Starts In Your Yard
   
   
With all public gatherings postponed or canceled, the Salisbury Forum is offering a special "webinar" with one of our most popular past speakers, Douglas Tallamy. His topic is very timely with recent headlines about three billion fewer birds in North America, global insect declines, and the impending extinction of one million species world wide.
 
Douglas Tallamy says that such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. During his talk, illustrated with lots of colorful photos, he will discuss simple steps that each of us can -- and must -- take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we are nature's best hope.  His interesting and often amusing talk will show how plants we import for decoration may actually lead to a mass extinction of local birds and animals that depend on our native ecosystem.
 
Douglas Tallamy is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware and author of several books including Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens and The Living Landscape.
