A UNBC Professor played a key role in a recent paper that outlines the human impact on the world.
Ecosystem Science and Management Associate Professor Doctor Oscar Venter was part of an international team of researchers to take part in the project.
Venter and company developed a human footprint map that they used to examine protected spaces around the world.
Using this technology, they determined that one third of the world’s protected areas have been severely modified by human life.
