In this episode we speak with Oswald Schmitz about a recent scientific paper he co-authored and published in the journal of Nature Climate Change related to how wildlife and rewilding can expand natural climate solutions, or in other words absorb more carbon – the study is called Trophic Rewilding Can Expand Natural Climate Solutions


Oswald is a Professor of population and community ecology at Yale University. Much of his work focuses on the linkage between biodiversity and ecosystem services, along with how species interact with their environments. Additionally, he looks into how predator and herbivore species determine the productivity of plants in ecosystems and their processes like carbon and nutrient cycling.

We talk about how how wildlife has largely been ignored in carbon reduction conversations and why that is the case, the impressive amount of carbon reduction that wildlife interacting in their environments can contribute to, the role of apex predators, wildlife conservation and carbon markets, human animal conflict, the risks of losing key species, the recent global agreement to conserve 30% of land and 30% of oceans and other topics.
