Speaker Eric W. Sanderson Landscape Ecologist

Eric W. Sanderson’s update to his “Welikia Project.”

“We’re going beyond ‘Mannahatta,’ launching the Welikia Project to encompass all of New York City circa 1609: Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and surrounding waters.

“Welikia means ‘my good home’ in Lenape, the original Native American language of the region.”

Eric W. Sanderson is a Senior Conservation Ecologist for the Wildlife Conservation Society at the Bronx Zoo, director of the Welikia Project and author of the best-selling “Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City,” and “Terra Nova: The New World After Oil, Cars, and Suburbs.”
