Ronald Sandler, PhD, Chair and Professor of Philosophy; Director, Ethics Institute, Northeastern University

1 Session: Tuesday, December 4, 7:00–8:15pm

Rapid ecological change, and climate change in particular, poses challenges to traditional conservation paradigms and strategies. It has also led some conservationists to endorse novel conservation techniques, such as assisted colonization, gene drives and even de-extinction. This talk will explore the values and philosophies that underlie species conservation under conditions of rapid change. It will ask us to think about what is valuable about species and why we ought to try to conserve them.
