Today's Show: Rewilding The World

3:30pm EST - Scientists worldwide are warning of the looming extinction of thousands of species, from tigers and polar bears to rare flowers, birds, and insects. If the destruction continues, a third of all plants and animals could disappear by 2050—and with them earth’s life-support ecosystems that provide food, water, medicine, and natural defenses against climate change. Caroline Fraser joins us to talk about this and what she feels are some solutions from her new book, Rewilding The World: Dispatches From The Conversation Revolution.
