About Chesapeake Conversations

Cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay is one of the largest and longest running ecosystem restoration efforts in the world. Over the last 50 years, we’ve invested billions to restore the Bay, and the world is watching to see how the Chesapeake responds. Chesapeake Conversations, hosted by Chesapeake Conservancy President & CEO Joel Dunn, takes an in-depth look at what’s working for the Chesapeake — and what’s not.

We’re launching with 4 episodes and will be posting new episodes featuring conversations with leaders in the conservation movement. Subscribe now wherever you find your podcasts or listen to an episode below.

We live in a brave new world where information is power. Think about what big data did for the banking and health care industries. Imagine if we could do the same for conservation…We are. It’s called precision conservation.

A hero to many conservationists, E.O. Wilson from Harvard University, has called for the protection of half the earth to protect biodiversity. Using precision conservation, we can do this in the Chesapeake, conserving 30% by 2030 and 50% by 2050. Imagine the legacy we can leave behind.

We need you, Wall Street. The government can’t fund the Chesapeake’s cleanup on its own. It’s going to take private investment to get the job done. The future of our Chesapeake Bay, and indeed our planet, depends on it.

Information and technology is democratizing conservation and empowering people everywhere to protect the environment where they live. It is literally up to us now — you and me.
