WCS 3-Sentence Science
February 7, 2020
Each year, Wildlife Conservation Society scientists publish more than 300 peer-reviewed studies and papers. “WCS 3-Sentence Science” is a regular tip-sheet — in bite sized helpings — of some of this published work.
Here we present work by WCS’s Enkhtuvshin Shiilegdamba and Ray Victurine on the connection between sustainable growth and biodiversity conservation.
- Protecting and restoring natural capital — Earth’s lands, waters, and biodiversity, and the life-supporting goods and services that flow from these — have been promoted by many as the best hope for conserving biodiversity while also supporting sustainable, inclusive growth.
- Evidence is growing that illuminating the ways in which people depend on nature for their well-being can motivate efforts that improve both.
- Creative yet highly dispersed innovation has shown glimpses of what is possible.
