Annette Lanjouw, Vice President, Strategic Initiatives and Great Ape Program, Arcus Foundation

Conserving species, particularly the “charismatic megafauna,” has been a focus of conservation efforts for many decades. With a growing human population, the protection of any single species—compared to the conservation of a landscape or ecosystem—can easily be questioned. Annette Lanjouw will discuss why the conservation of individual species is critical and how this effort enables us to connect with the environment in ways that make action and responses meaningful.
