A Smart Growth Network Webinar
Thursday, March 31, 2022 - 1:00pm EDT
Ignacio Jiménez has managed conservation projects on three continents over 30 years, pioneering an approach to conservation he calls “Full Nature” that seeks to integrate the ecological health of a region with the health of human communities. His book Effective Conservation: Parks, Rewilding, and Local Development further explores a "Full Nature" approach.
Jiménez explained how rewilding techniques can preserve endangered species and protect communities by promoting fully functional natural landscapes that are tied to the basic needs of the communities in their midst.
