11. Performative conservation: What's wrong with showing off? (Adam Welz)

June 2021


These days some very impressive-sounding conservation projects are catching the public eye, from massive tree-planting initiatives to high-profile urban greening. They capture the headlines and they capture the imagination. But do they deserve the level of attention and adulation that they receive? Or should we be a little more discerning as conservationists and the public, and pay a little more attention to the details?

Someone who has looked into these questions is Adam Welz. He is a writer, photographer, filmmaker and self-proclaimed conservation theorist with an uncompromising approach to conservation.

Hi Russ. Sorry to hear that. I opened the episode on Chrome (on my Mac) and the embedded player (above) worked fine. I also tried all of the podcast platform links (below) and there was no problem with any of them. So, I am afraid I'm not sure what the problem might be. I suggest that, if you used the embedded player, you try the podcast platform links - and vice-versa. I hope that helps. Andre.
