The Department of American Indian Studies, The College of the Environment, The Diversity Research Institute and the Department of Communication are pleased to announce a book talk by journalist and senior environmental reporter, Glen Martin, on Thursday, January 17 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in the Smith Room (room 324) of Suzzallo Library.

Glen Martin’s presentation will address the broad theses presented in his recent book, Game Changer: Animal Rights and the Fate of Africa’s Wildlife, with particular focus on the necessity of incorporating the input of indigenous people in ambitious conservation schemes. He will discuss issues involving African native communities, but will also examine native interests and conservation dynamics in North America; he hopes to spend some time on the Inuit Tapirisat and the harp seal pup harvest controversy, and the Yurok and salmon id restoration efforts in
the Klamath watershed.

The talk will be followed by a reception.
