The great conservation targets should be based on what is necessary to protect nature in all its expressions. When in 1988 the Brundtland report called for tripling the world’s protected area estate there was a strong belief that sustainable development would ensure the proper care for nature on the rest of the unprotected earth. This has proven wrong.

We therefore must materially shift our protected areas target to protect at least half of the world, land and water, in an interconnected way to conform with what conservation biologists have learned about the needs of nature.

It is time for conservationists to reset the debate based on scientific findings and assert nature’s needs fearlessly.

Presented by the Interpretive Guides Association and the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, join conservationist, writer and photographer Harvey Locke for an inspiring discussion on how the Bow Valley fits within global conservation goals.
