Harvey Locke is one of Canada’s and the world’s most respected voices for the protection of wildness. And he is coming to Saskatoon, as chair of the Nature Needs Half movement, to deliver an urgent message.
The Nature Needs Half movement begins with the recognition that nature needs sufficient space to function properly for the benefit of all life on our planet. In most ecosystems, science demonstrates that at least half of the region must be protected to ensure the Earth’s resilience in the face of environmental change. We only have to look around us or listen to the news to know that conservation efforts to date have not been sufficient to sustain life on Earth.
What does the knowledge mean for those of us who live along the banks of the South Saskatchewan River? How do we transform the bold vision of Nature Needs Half into an achievable strategy?
Harvey Locke will be addressing these questions at a public event at the Castle Theatre in Aden Bowman Collegiate from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the evening of May 25. We hope that you will be able to join us.
