The information presented here is the synthesis of collaborative work completed by students in the Ecosystem Management Technician program at Fleming College’s School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences. Our focus is the intersection of human and the wildlife ecology. We are particularly interested in situations where plants and animals are perceived to be having a negative impact on ecological health or human activities. Our goal is to apply principles of ecology to resolve these issues.
The TedX talk below is about how we could reframe our perception and approach to invasive species. Considering our “success” rate, this may not be a bad idea!
Ecosystem Management recognizes the need to engage people and local communities in our efforts to address ecological issues. This TedX talk is all about how successful this approach can be.
