New Mexico's Conservation Challenges
KUNM Call In Show 9/27 8a: New Mexico has high alpine meadows, desert badlands and everything in between. But it also has its share of challenges when it comes to the environment. Those include historic issues such as mining, grazing and energy development. But there are new pressures as well, such as climate change, drought, and the loss of rural lands to development.
What does conservation mean to you? How do you feel about the state of the environment in New Mexico? And what is the role of citizens in conserving resources for future generations? We’ll hear from an author and from the director of a nonprofit focused on land conservation. We'd like to hear from you, too! Email email@example.com, post your comments online, or call in live during the show.
