There is a rapidly evolving field that goes by several names including urban conservation, civic ecology, One Health, and others. No matter the name, this field is trying to create healthier, more resilient cities for all of its residents – human and wild.

Join The Nature Conservancy in Texas’ Jaime González as he discusses the challenges, opportunities, and vision for this final frontier of conservation and why saving cities is critical so saving local ecosystems.

Jaime González serves as the Houston Urban Conservation Programs Manager for The Nature Conservancy in Texas (TNC).  His work at TNC involves building partnerships, and creating and managing projects, to help make Houston a more resilient, biologically diverse, cooler, healthier, and better-connected city. He is one of growing corps of 25 Nature Conservancy city leads working to create healthier cities using nature-based solutions throughout North America.  Jaime is program director of Houston Healthy Cities.
