The Oasis Network Podcast
About This Show
Oasis is here. A place for families. A place for secular people. A network of communities that are empowered by reason and connected by compassion.
Across the nation, our weekly gatherings feature live performances by local musicians, speakers to inspire and educate, and children's programming to entertain and stimulate young minds.
This podcast features a selection of talks from Oasis community members and special guest speakers.
Each talk covers a different topic—usually something inspiring, motivating, or, educational, and always grounded in reason.

069 "Conservation Corridors" Stacy Lindshield
Stacy Lindshield, "Conservation Corridors: Good for Primates, Good for Communities"
Lindshield will discuss how biological corridors are being integrated into wildlife conservation and management strategies. Her research considers how micro-corridors reduce mortality risk in neotropical rainforest animals, including monkeys, kinkajous, sloths and opossums. She will discuss how these small corridors contribute to mega-corridor systems linking wildlife communities to protected lands at regional and national scales, and how these systems rely on the participation of diverse stakeholders. Lindshield will also talk about how she is using corridor concepts in Senegal to reduce the impact of gold mining and development on critically endangered western chimpanzees.
