Understanding the Wildlife Crisis

Featuring Dr. Bruce A. Stein, National Wildlife Federation Chief Scientist

Much of the commentary we hear today about the state of wildlife and climate change on TV, the Internet, and social media comes from pundits and talking heads, not actual scientists. The release of a sobering new UN assessment on the global extinction crisis, widely reported on this past spring, highlights the magnitude of the problem, but understanding the details – for the U.S. and around the world – can be confusing.

What’s really happening? And what can we do to change the conservation outlook for our wildlife species?

With over 40 years of experience, Dr. Bruce Stein is here to break down the wildlife crisis, talk about how the National Wildlife Federation is working to reverse these declines, and explain how you can be part of the solution.

Recorded September 5, 2019 and published for viewing September 25, 2019.
