    Jungle Deep - Episode 26 Mongabay's Rhett Butler

    When you want information about the tropical rain forest, maybe diverse information like, the effects of rainforest destruction on climate change, the mining practices for gold in Brazil, the breeding behavior of jaguars, or of the use of drones in monitoring wildlife in Borneo - where would you go? Online, for sure - but to which website? Well, teachers, students, company CEOs, academic PHDs, environmental NGOs, and government officials have been going to the most visited website on the subject of Tropical Rainforests in the world: Mongabay.com.

    Jungle Deep - Episode 25 The Real Tarzan of Africa, DeWet Du Toit

    Today we meet the amazing DeWet Du Toit. He is the one I call, the Real African Tarzan! That's because he does live in Africa, and much of the time he lives as Tarzan lived - in the jungles, climbing trees, diving off waterfalls, and cavorting with elephants and pythons. This Tarzan is complete with gorgeous muscles, a stylish loincloth, and a love for wildlife. This guy is the real deal. It's taken me months to arrange, but we will finally get to talk to this modern-day Tarzan. DeWet is an actor determined to play Tarzan in the next live action film. He is also a film-maker and excellent at internet marketing, too. He is a man, who, against all odds and occasional ridicule, is following a dream. Right now, we are connected to DeWet in Africa, and we are going to explore his dream, his life, and get to know, today's TARZAN!

    Jungle Deep - Episode 24 Sloths with Stephanie Arne

    Jungle Deep - Episode 24 Sloths with Stephanie Arne

    Hello, and welcome. We are going to talk with our Field Correspondent, Stephanie Arne from the Honolulu Zoo about Sloths. If you were lucky enough to spot one in the trees of the South American rain forest, it would look like a stringy clump of moss and algae in the branches overhead. It wouldn't seem to move, because they move so slowly. And because they live upside down, hanging from tree branches, you wouldn't recognize one as being an animal at all. But when you get to know a sloth that has been all cleaned up, you find that they are delightful creatures and down-right cute. Well, thanks to Stephanie, we are going to get to know Sloths.
