Your Call: What are the connections between cultural diversity and biological diversity?

On the July 29th, 2014 edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation Mark Dowie, investigative journalist and author of Conservation Refugees: The Hundred-Year Conflict between Global Conservation and Native Peoples. He writes that about half of world’s protected conservation areas were occupied or used by indigenous peoples, but they were displaced in the interests of conservation, so what is the history of the US national parks and Native Peoples? Join the conversation, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
