I’ve posted before about Wade Davis:

Wade Davis has a unique perspective on the issues brought to the fore in the challenge put to Stephen Harper’s blatantly aggressive attack on Canada’s sacred wilderness and the First Nations way of life.

I recommend this TED talk by way of introduction to his genius and passion.
