E.O. Wilson, who died in early January, and David Attenborough met for a first-ever interview on Half Earth Day (which springs from the Half Earth Project). The interview took place on October 22, 2021 and was moderated by Tim Smit at the Royal Geographical Society in London.
It’s around thirty minutes long and each moment of it is just too short as they fly by while we watch these two conservation heavy hitters offer up their opinions on the status of biodiversity today.
Although it’s a deadly serious subject they both find a way to inject their own brands of humor.
Time for me to step out of the way so you can watch and enjoy./JA

“Up there on your bookshelf between Tolkien and Watership Down is where this book belongs. As an anthropomorphic adventure that winds through the realm of animals possessing courage, savagery, perseverance, and ultimately wisdom in the face of mounting evil threats – humans disconnected from the natural world – the tale is relevant, if not necessary.”
