Educating ravens, and other stories/essays

I published a short article today in The Atlantic on “educational” approaches to conservation that aim to teach “problematic” animals new ways of living – rather than fencing them out or killing them. This article in one of four short pieces I’ve published recently that takes some of the philosophical questions I’ve been exploring in my academic writing and presents them in a way that is aimed at a more general readership.

You can see a list of my other popular essays here. Recent highlights are listed below.

Snail Stories for a Time of Extinctions,” Sydney Environment Institute opinions.

Moving Birds: Translocation in an Unraveling World,” Los Angeles Review of Books.

Hospice Earth.” Overland.
