Why Forests Matter

BY JIM HOWE
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"This is the Black-throated Green Warbler. I know how to do the birdcall for this, but I'll do it afterwards, I promise."

In Why Forests Matter from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, Deputy Executive Director of the Nature Conservancy of Central & Western New York, Jim Howe, explains the three-part mission of organization: to protect land and water (120 million acres around the world, including 100,000 acres in Western and Central New York), to transform policy and practice for sustainability and to inspire people to connect with nature. Why do forests matter? Howe leads us on a tour of protected forest lands that provide imporved healthed and mental outlook, as well as critical habitats for wildlife. And Howe's Black-throated Green Warbler call was a show stopper!
