I recently came across this awesome map over on Digilicious, showing the many different ways that other countries see the world. Some are fairly intuitive, Poland perhaps? Others rather less so, Albania? And some just utterly wonderful, Sri Lanka! Click on the image to take you over to a high resolution version on Digilicious.
James is a highly acclaimed public speaker, delivering keynotes, lectures and debates to a wide range of audiences including students, the public, conservation practioners and scientists. Rather than further polarizing already divisive conservation topics, James aims to explain the complexity and nuance of conservation. What we choose to do over the next five decades, will profoundly influence the diversity of life on eath for the next 5 million years. It’s never been a more important, or more exciting time to be a conservationist.
