War, climate change, natural disasters, and our own destructive behavior have endangered some of Earth’s most precious treasures, from historical sites and monuments to unique natural habitats.
This profusely illustrated volume pays tribute to some of the wonders that remain at risk, including the archeological remains of Afghanistan’s Bamiyan Valley, devastated by the Taliban; Alaska’s Denali National Park, harmed by tourism and uncontrolled development; Tanzania’s Telous Game Reserve, victimized by poachers; and the Kiribati Archipelago in Oceania, which could vanish entirely due to rising sea levels.
At this week’s METal guest speaker Tom Patterson will share that with a troubling present that offers a message of hope for the future, and calls on us all to protect our natural environment and cultural heritage.
Tom is the Unisys Chief Trust Officer and Vice President of the Global Security business.
He brings more than 30 years of leading-edge security experience, expertise, and innovation helping commercial and public sector clients tackle some of their most complex security challenges.Join Report
