Abstract Anthropologist/ethnobotanist Wade Davis is a passionate advocate for preserving what he's dubbed the "ethnosphere." Using stunning photos and stories, Davis celebrates the extraordinary diversity of the world's indigenous cultures in this TEDTalk. A National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Davis travels the globe to document the cultural practices of people whose time-honored ways of life are disappearing from the planet at an alarming rate.
