      The Spine of the Continent (MLF)

      Mary Ellen Hannibal, Author, Evidence of Evolution; 2011 Alicia Patterson Foundation Fellow


      Hannibal will give a slide presentation and share her latest work, The Spine of the Continent.  Praised by luminaries such as E.O. Wilson and Paul Ehrlich, in the words of Thomas Lovejoy, Hannibal's book "is the biography of a big conservation idea." Hannibal chronicles the development of the science that tells us what can be done to heal the wounds in our life-support system, nature. Hannibal has plenty of tales to tell of heroic people who are doing the right thing by the creatures and landscapes we love, from a hairdresser who relocates beaver to a waitress-turned-whistleblower who was unjustly prosecuted regarding the death of a rare jaguar to the scientists who are racing to apply their knowledge. Hannibal's journalism accolades include Stanford's Knight-Risser Prize for Western Enviromental Journalism and the National Association of Science Writer's Science and Society Award.
