Brent Plater, Wild Equity Executive Director, will be interviewed on KOWS 107.3 FM’s Tommy’s Holiday Camp about Wild Equity’s work concerning the communities within and surrounding the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge.

The Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge was created to protect extremely rare insects, and remains the only wildlife refuge specifically created for invertebrate conservation. But today it is threatened by an unforeseen problem: nitrogen deposition, driven by an explosion of fossil-fuel fired power plants, ringing the dunes. If the rate of nitrogen deposition isn’t arrested or mitigated, we may witness the extinction of the Lange’s Metalmark Butterfly, who’s numbers are now in the dozens. Brent Plater, Executive Director of the Wild Equity Institute, will tell us about this largely unknown landscape, how to observe wildlife there, and how his organization is experimenting with new ways to build a stronger conservation and environmental movement to protect the Dunes and hopefully make conservation movements stronger and more resilient in the process.
