Urban Ecology and Domestic Animals

I have had the good fortune to be increasingly working with the Center for Urban Resilience (CURes) at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. One of the big environmental issues we are working on is what to do about the restoration of the Ballona Wetlands.

Here is a short video I recorded at the request of the Annenberg Foundation that speaks to some of the ethical and policy concerns about building an urban ecology centre in the wetlands. As you’ll hear, chief amongst these concerns is whether domestic as well as wild animals should be considered as part of urban ecosystem of Los Angeles, and part of the programming at a proposed center for urban ecology.
