Kendall Jones interviewed for local ABC news about global wilderness loss
Kendall Jones, a GFS PhD student was interviewed last week for ABC news about a recent publication on global wilderness loss.
The paper was written by James Watson and colleagues and shows that only 23% of Earth's land surface now contains intact wilderness areas. These areas are globally important for biodiversity and are disappearing rapidly.
