Cash, a philosopher by training and a biologist by passion, makes his compelling case to preserve biodiversity on the account that biology is the primary driver of technological innovation. He offers a look into how the theory of evolution shaped human consciousness, and from there, how we began to look into the natural world for technological, design, and medical inspiration.

Cash Galko strives to combine the principles of sustainability with the power of creativity. His love of nature compels him to explore humanity’s relation to the natural world. He enjoys bird-watching, reading fantasy, and debating the merits of an anarchist state.
