Guardians of the Trees: Dr. Kinari Webb & Living on Earth

10/05/2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

When Kinari Webb first traveled to Indonesian Borneo at 21 to study orangutans, she was both awestruck by the beauty of her surroundings and heartbroken by the rainforest destruction she witnessed. As she got to know the local communities, she realized that their need to pay for expensive healthcare led directly to the rampant logging, which in turn imperiled their health and safety even further. Webb realized her true calling was at the intersection of medicine and conservation.

On October 5, please join the nationally-syndicated public radio show Living on Earth, for a live virtual conversation with Dr. Webb as part of the Living on Earth Book Club.

This event is co-sponsored with Harvard Chan C-Change, the Boston College Environmental Studies Program, the UMass Boston School for the Environment, and the UMass Boston McCormack Graduate School. It will be introduced by Dr. Aaron Bernstein, Director, Harvard Chan C-CHANGE.
