Beyond Borders: Transboundary Conservation

October 25, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Beyond Borders: Transboundary Conservation in an Interconnected World (online)

This event is hosted by the North Cascades Institute

Class Tuition: $10

Nature knows no borders. Despite this, the political boundaries of the modern world have a profound influence on our landscape.

The North Cascades Mountains retain large tracts of wild land that support a great diversity of species, but these mountains are split by the 49th parallel, the international border between Canada and the United States. While this line has great meaning and importance in the lives of Homo sapiens, it is largely irrelevant to the other species that make these mountains their home – at least as far as they are aware.

During this session, we will explore the transboundary nature of the North Cascades, how borders can be both meaningless and very consequential, and why healthy ecosystems need to function across these boundaries. Using examples from wolverines to birds to fish and amphibians, we’ll discuss the importance and challenges of cross-border conservation both locally and globally, particularly in light of our changing climate.

It’s time to think beyond borders!
