NYTimes OpEd- Conservation or Curation?

Victo Ngai

I did a quickie for today’s NYTimes Op-Ed on how the new definition of what qualifies as an endangered species, passed this month, severely limits the scope of the law.  

Previously, the language of the law — that a species qualifies if it is “at risk of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range” — was read to mean that species should be protected if their geographic range was significantly smaller than it had been in the past. Now, a species will only count as endangered if it is at risk of going extinct. This significantly restricts conservation and ignores any responsibility we may have to mitigate even a portion of the harms that we’ve committed against other species. Read the article here

The illustration features a Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, its protection has been recently denied because they were not at risk of extinction, even though their geographic range was significantly smaller than it had been in the past. 

Big thanks to AD Matt Dorfman, always a pleasure to work with. He suggested we go for a more playful layout instead of boxing the fish in, which made the image that much more dynamic. I also like how the trout now looks like its skidding down some stairs screaming while falling apart.

We held our second annual Lucky Peach WINNERS ARE LOSERS After Party for the James Beard Books, Broadcast and Journalism Awards this past weekend at Má Pêche

In order to make the night more than just a bunch of people getting drunk at a midtown restaurant, we tried to bring the All You Can Eat issue (hitting newsstands May 20) to life at the party. Adam Gollner has a mammoth piece about the history of eating in Quebec in the forthcoming issue, so the main dining room featured a “Quebe Cornucopia” by M. Wells, along with a light show by ggeeoorrggiiaa and music by Mark Ibold, Brian Turner, and Bruno Meyrick-Jones.   

The top floor channeled Las Vegas excess, complete with an AYCE Vegas-style buffet by Paul Carmichael, as well as craps and roulette tables (with gambling for prizes, kind of Chuck E. Cheese’s style!). The “All Ewe Can Eat” themed balcony bar, featured sheep-inspired cocktails by Joaquín Simó of Pouring Ribbons, lamb ribs, and sheep paintings by Steve Keene that doubled as takeaways for guests. We’re gonna put a few those untaken paintings online to entice people to subscribe to magazine just as soon as our hangovers clear up. 

Thank you to all of our partners who made WINNERS ARE LOSERS possible: Breville, Le Creuset, Tiger Beer, and Audi. Additional thanks to Campari America, Domaine Carneros, and S.Pellegrino
