During my eleven years as a New York City public school teacher, I saw firsthand the impact that poverty has on the classroom.

Sal Albanese

Biodiversity can't be maintained by protecting a few species in a zoo, or by preserving greenbelts or national parks. To function properly, nature needs more room than that.
