What does a true wildlife conservation rockstar think will make a difference in our quest to save the world? Hint: It’s simpler than you might think.
I had the amazing opportunity to find out how/why at the 2015 International Wildlife Conservation Expo, when I sat down with Stuart Strahl, PhD, president and CEO of Chicago Zoological Society/Brookfield Zoo.

I had some moments of transformative understanding this past weekend at the International Wildlife Conservation Expo. Moments that blew my mind, brought tears to my eyes and above all, changed what I thought I knew about wildlife conservation.
Hosted by the Chicago Zoological Society/Brookfield Zoo (CZS), the Wildlife Conservation Network, and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, the day-long learn-fest had a star-studded line-up of conservation rockstars. I had the great fortune to sit down with two of them—Gary Wolfe, PhD, current staff member and former executive director of Vital Ground, and Stuart Strahl, PhD, president and CEO of CZS, who served up some conservation realness.
