Updated: Feb 13, 2019

The newspaper Le Mauricien wrote an article following the call for more radical solutions in conservation science published by colleague Vincent Florens (University of Mauritius) and Christian in a Science letter. This news article, while quoting our observations and recommendations, went further and described in a very accurate and insightful way the current challenges that our discipline faces.
