This Land is Your Land


What other people call wild, many people have called home.

Chuck Sams Director of the US National Park Service


Protecting wild spaces helps to conserve the species that call them home — and is one of the best strategies for meeting global climate goals. National parks and other protected areas can cultivate a healthy relationship between humans and the land they depend on. How much more land — and ocean — do we need to preserve in order to maintain ecological and social wellness? What role can indigenous and local communities play in managing and protecting land? How is rewilding transforming key ecosystems in South America? Hear from a conservationist who has helped protect 15 million acres of land and 30 million marine acres in South America, and the US National Park Service’s first indigenous director on the ways that wilderness transforms people and the planet.
