    Episode 059 - Morgan Heim uses wildlife conservation storytelling to bring awareness for global issues

    Episode 058- Katie Schuler creates films on pangolins - the most trafficked mammal in the world

    Episode 058- Katie Schuler creates films on pangolins - the most trafficked mammal in the world

    Katie Schuler is a new friend I met at Jackson Wild and the International League of Conservation Photographers Wild Speak West in September 2019. I was completely surprised and inspired by Katie’s commitment to work on the world’s most trafficked mammal. She is an advocate for the planet’s most at-risk species, Katie operates at the nexus between science, empathy, and storytelling. More than a decade of filmmaking across six continents has afforded Katie expertise in the field and in the editing room. Using her signature storytelling flair, Katie’s films explore how we live alongside nature, garnering accolades, accruing millions of views, and inspiring meaningful conservation victories. Her production company, Coral & Oak Studios, has partnered with many of the most recognizable names in wildlife filmmaking, including National Geographic, Smithsonian, BBC, HBO, and PBS. Katie’s film, Pangolin, is the winner of six best short awards including Jackson Wild’s 2017 Best Short category. Since its premiere, Pangolin has been translated into four languages, reaching over 75 million people while serving as an important tool for conservation. Two of her latest films, Where Life Begins, and Nigerians Fight to Protect the World’s Most Trafficked Mammal, have won awards at festivals in 2019. Katie is a National Geographic Explorer, a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art and Design, a Henry Luce Fellow, and a member of the International League of a Conservation Photographer’s Emerging League. She currently operates out of Washington, D.C. alongside her husband, Nick, and dog, Bullseye. And now little Schuler!

    Episode 057 - Suzie Marlow trains dogs for wildlife conservation research

    Suzie Marlow is a bounder and research scientist for the Rogue Dog Detection org. She has the coolest job in the world - in my opinion! She gets to take her dog into the field and find wildlife. I am excited to share this episode today!
    In 2019 I met another bounder Jennifer Hartman at the Wildlife Society Conference in Reno - since then I've been following their amazing projects on social media.
    Rogue Detection Dogs bring the conservation detection dog method to the forefront of scientific research by providing knowledgeable field teams and hands-on instruction for researchers, aspiring dog handlers, and citizen scientists to foster collaboration and community involvement.
