Living with Crows in Hawaii: Conservation in Haunted Landscapes
September 23, 2014
In Living with Crows in Hawaii: Conservation in Haunted Landscapes, environmental philosopher and anthropologist Dr. Thom Van Dooren shares his perspectives on contested issues of conservation and extinction in Hawai'i. From 2002 the Hawaiian crow was extinct in the wild. The only remaining birds live in captivity, subject to a long-running breeding and conservation plan. The promise of their future return to the forest exerts powerful pressure on management policy, helping to shape future possibilities for everyone in this landscape.
