Exploring the Power and Pitfalls of Storytelling for Conservation

A conversation with Dr. Nalini Nadkarni and Stephen Trimble.

Join Wild Utah Project to hear ecologist Nalini Nadkarni and naturalist Stephen Trimble explore the power and pitfalls of storytelling for conservation and science. Dr. Nalini Nadkarni pioneered the study of Costa Rican rain forest canopies. Currently a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah, she’s the author of Between Earth and Sky: Our Intimate Connections to Trees and has delivered TED Talks on “Conserving the Canopy” and “Life Science in Prison.” Stephen Trimble often serves as a consultant and writer for the conservation community. He was recognized by Catalyst Magazine as one of 100 “catalysts, inspirators—those who have made our Wasatch Front community a more sustainable, compassionate and vibrant place to live.”
