I am pleased to inform you that Professor Tanya Golash Boza is joining as chairperson of Species Ecology. Tanya is joining us with her impeccable and ground-breaking research work in sociology in general but eco-racial-sociology in particular. Her work as far Species Ecology is concern poses game-changing blueprint-portfolio viz-a-viz global green water policy in terms of how mother nature and all its species should be governed against the backdrop of anthropocentric and humanistic socio-cultural racial persecution and interracial eco-ignorant capitalistic free-market globalization-driven so called human development which made poor nations more poorer and small fragment of globally rich nations more richer. The outward manifestations rounded to biodiversity loss, fresh water depletion, human persecution (majority of the people on earth are living less than dollars a day as an example), species extinction, atmospheric ozone depletion, global fish stock depletion, nitrogen and phosphorus cycle decimation and global warming to name few. Tanya’s research work is not only ground breaking or pioneering but instrumental to illuminate light on sociological studies that neatly interconnected with ecological socialism, the curse and pitfalls of capitalism and globalization. Ecology and Wildlife Science standalone cannot solve species extinction crises, it is Professor Golash-Boza’s research work on sociology that in the end will drive humanity to rectify their misdeed both in social, economic, cultural, spiritual and most importantly ecological dimensions.
Species Ecology warmly welcome Tanya to join as our chair. Her presence will shine like a distant living star. And her work will help humanity to reorder the human planet that now facing sixth mass extinction event – Thanks to capitalistic ‘Laissez-faire‘ free market economy in the form of market instrument as such globalization that single-handedly destroying our only home: the Earth.
