Alta Live: Protecting the Butterflies and the Bees

Bumblebees, butterflies, and other invertebrates need our help—and Alta Journal trailblazer Sarina Jepsen has dedicated her career to protecting these pollinators. She joins Alta Journal contributor Jessica Klein for a conversation about bee and butterfly conservation, her work with the Xerces Society, and how we can all make small changes with big impacts.



Sarina Jepsen is the director of the endangered species program at the Xerces Society, a science-based nonprofit dedicated to the conservation of invertebrates. She has authored multiple publications on the conservation of endangered species and has developed management guidance for federal agencies. She holds a master’s in entomology from UC Davis.

Jessica Klein is a freelance journalist whose work has appeared in the Atlantic, the New York Times, and the Guardian. She is a contributing reporter at the Fuller Project, a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to reporting on issues that affect women. She wrote about Sarina Jepsen as part of Alta Journal’s Trailblazers series for the Summer 2021 issue.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
