Summary:

Dr. Karen Shragg will illuminate the missing piece for why wildlife is losing the battle of survival, our growth and takeover of the landscape.  Sprawl is now documented to be related to population growth.  Avoiding this topic because it is currently tethered to politics has been another nail in the coffin of the protection of wildlife.  Sprawling Over America: Why the Endangered Species Act isn’t Enough boldly, scientifically, and compassionately addresses an issue too long ignored to the detriment of all.
