Environmental Writer

Emma Marris is an environmental writer and reporter who writes on conservation, ecology, energy, agriculture, food, language, books and film. Her stories have appeared in National Geographic, Slate, the New York Times and above all, Nature, where she worked as a staffer for several years. Marris has a Master’s in Science Writing from the Johns Hopkins University. In 2011, she published her first book, Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World. The book highlights alternative conservation strategies that do not focus on holding or returning land to a historical baseline. From managed relocation of species threatened by climate change to the embrace of so-called novel ecosystems, she champions a blurring of the lines between nature and people, and a conscious and responsible care of our humanized planet.
