Early Warning Systems for Biodiversity in Cascadia: a journey via southern Africa and Antarctica, with Dr. Phoebe Barnard

Dr. Phoebe Barnard’s life so far has taken her through evolutionary ecology, ornithology, conservation biology, global change science, environmental observation systems, ecosystem assessment, sustainability strategy and environmental futures.  A mountaineer, poet, and volcano climber by heart, she works in government, academia, and nonprofits with economists, lawyers, policymakers, citizen scientists, and other scientists to change the way we do things.

We can change it.” Phoebe is the Executive Director of the Pacific Biodiversity Institute, an Affiliate Professor at the  University of Washington, and a Research Associate at the University of Cape Town.
