Manage episode 290838650 series 2667905
Jennifer Morris is Chief Executive Officer of The Nature Conservancy, a global conservation organization working with partners around the world to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Jennifer leads nearly 4,000 global staff who are dedicated to creating a world where people and nature thrive together.
Better than anyone, Jennifer understands that the health of each individual and each family is inextricably linked to the health of the environment. Earth Day was just last week, and I want to challenge our listeners to think about conservation as not only a good thing to do for the natural world, but as something that is vital to our health and long-term well-being.
The pandemic we’ve all been living through is just one example of how nature affects us all. How we choose to interact with nature can dramatically shape our nation’s and our world’s trajectory.
