Looking through an animal’s senses can be the best way to understand their life stories. Turning this lens onto conservation, professor Jesse Barber emphasizes that conservation of biodiversity demands that we look at the world as other animals do. Jesse grew up in wild spaces—from Alaska to Wyoming—before moving to the eastern U.S. to complete his doctoral degree where he found a developed landscape, inundated with light and noise. As a researcher, Jesse wants to experience the world through other animals’ eyes and ears. Today, Jesse continues to pursue answers to vital questions at the interface of biodiversity, evolution, and conservation. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
