Healy Hamilton
Pin-pointing Areas of Conservation Priority

In this month's episode of Conservation Conversations, Sean is joined by former NatureServe Chief Scientist Dr. Healy Hamilton to talk about the Map of Biodiversity Importance. Learn about what the map is, how it will help the United States to protect 30% of land and waters by 2030, and why we should care about biodiversity at all. Plus, Healy shares her own career journey and makes the case that seahorses are some of the most charismatic species on the planet.

Thank you to the Esri, Microsoft, The Nature Conservancy, the natural heritage programs in Pennsylvania, New York, and Virginia, and the entire NatureServe Network for making this work possible.
