AYANA YOUNG ON ECOLOGICAL ACTIVISM & LIVING FOR THE WILD

Future Fossils: Podcast Interview by Michael Garfield / DEC 5, 2017

We talk about:

Her transition from anonymous, germaphobic suburban consumer to restoration ecologist, activist, and dirt-working spokesperson for the world’s last remaining wilderness

Being a person of place and cultivating a personal relationship with our wild (and not-so-wild) lands

Love in a time of catastrophe and how to FEEL our impact on a planetary scale

What wilderness means in The Anthropocene and what ought to guide our decisions in restoration ecology (not just “restoring to 200 years ago” as if that’s the best goal)

Restoring not extinct ecosystems but biodiversity and resiliency

The joy of personal sacrifice to a cause and purpose greater than yourself

What inspires her to keep going against all obstacles to the Good Work

How to be an empowered activist and servant in love with life and your imperfect self

Picking yourself up after failure
