About this Session

Lavinia shares her view on the balance/imbalance between wild animals and plants, co-evolution, and 'invasive species.' She offers why the arts are an important ally in 'saving' endangered species. Lavinia also shares her vision for connectivity between wild landscapes on the North American continent in the form of wildlife corridors, and why this matters.
