From the Ted Talk by Emma Marris: Are wild animals really "wild"?

Unscramble the Blue Letters

EM: Yeah, I think that is kind of how the cnaitrevsoon movement is tderinng, honestly, I think ieindgouns protected areas are the sort of hot new topic in conservation. They're getting set up in different parts around the world. Canada has just announced quite a few of them over the last five yaers. There was a paper that came out recently that got a lot of attention, showing that in Australia, Brazil and Canada, indigenous protected areas have higher levels of biodiversity than parks, sugsnegitg that, yes, those management approaches that are millennia-old are really effective in keeping a kind of a multi-species-community going. So I think there's a lot of iesetrnt in that, a lot of hope that could be a way forward. In the book, I talk about going to the Peruvian Amazon, where there's a big park called Manu, which is one of the highest biodiversity parks probably on Earth, and they have ploepe living inside of it, the Machiguenga, and some more sort of old-fashioned ctosnvinoiatsres feel that the presence of the Machiguenga in the park is a problem because they hunt there. But it seems pretty claer from the research I read and from my time that I spent in the park that they're actually acting as de facto biodiversity managers and guards. And yes, they're hunting, but they're hunting in a sustainable way. So, yeah, I think that this is honestly the best way forward, right, because it marries the sort of justice cause of indigenous sovereignty with the pragmatic cause of getting the people who are best qualified to manage lapnasceds on the job. So, yes, I arege with Lynn cetpoellmy.

Original Text

EM: Yeah, I think that is kind of how the conservation movement is trending, honestly, I think indigenous protected areas are the sort of hot new topic in conservation. They're getting set up in different parts around the world. Canada has just announced quite a few of them over the last five years. There was a paper that came out recently that got a lot of attention, showing that in Australia, Brazil and Canada, indigenous protected areas have higher levels of biodiversity than parks, suggesting that, yes, those management approaches that are millennia-old are really effective in keeping a kind of a multi-species-community going. So I think there's a lot of interest in that, a lot of hope that could be a way forward. In the book, I talk about going to the Peruvian Amazon, where there's a big park called Manu, which is one of the highest biodiversity parks probably on Earth, and they have people living inside of it, the Machiguenga, and some more sort of old-fashioned conservationists feel that the presence of the Machiguenga in the park is a problem because they hunt there. But it seems pretty clear from the research I read and from my time that I spent in the park that they're actually acting as de facto biodiversity managers and guards. And yes, they're hunting, but they're hunting in a sustainable way. So, yeah, I think that this is honestly the best way forward, right, because it marries the sort of justice cause of indigenous sovereignty with the pragmatic cause of getting the people who are best qualified to manage landscapes on the job. So, yes, I agree with Lynn completely.
