I met with a wildlife health expert last week. She works to develop vaccinations, protections, supports for endangered wildlife populations. She told me she will be working in Yellowstone on a new project. I mentioned the New York Times article on the effects of climate change on the Yellowstone eco-systems and species. She dismissed the topic and I couldn’t understand why. Yes, she saved species, gave them new strengths to deal with changing conditions and situations, but a veterinary solution to habitat change and loss seemed somehow superficial, a bit like offering bandaids to the crew of the Titanic. A lovely and caring sentiment but doomed to be swept away by the sheer scale and scope of reality.
