    Episode 208: Sweet & Salty: Sea Otters

    Episode 208: Sweet & Salty: Sea Otters

    We return to the ocean to one of the most beloved marine mammals, the Sea Otter. Sea otters were almost hunted to extinction for their lustrous fur coats. By the early 20th century they numbered just a few thousand . Through international cooperation, Sea Otters were protected and now number over 100,000 animals in the wild. However, Sea Otters are still endangered and under incredible pressure. This species is also critical to a healthy coastal ecosystem around the northern Pacific rim. We hope you enjoy learning more in this week's podcast about Sea Otters and all their mustelid hijinks.

    Episode 207: Trunks & Leaves, Elephant Conservation w/Dr Shermin de Silva

    This week we welcome Dr. Shermin de Silva, the founder and President of Trunks and Leaves. Dr. de Silva is an expert in Asian elephant conservation. We discuss many of the issues facing elephants in Asia. It is a fascinating look at how Asian elephant conservation differs from African elephant conservation. We also discuss many differences between African and Asian elephants and how that can influence their futures.

    Dr. de Silva also asked us to share this as she said:
    We have an emerging crisis in which one of the critical corridors linked to the national park is under threat. You can see more about it here on our blog. It's a developing situation and I am setting up a legal defense fund for the lawsuits being filed to protect the corridor. 
    You can donate to the defense fund by the following link (Thank you!)

    Episode 206: Shocked by Shoebills

    Episode 206: Shocked by Shoebills

    The Shoebill, or also known as Shoebill Stork, Death Pelican, Whalehead, and others, is one unique bird.  What draws most to this bird is its enormous beak. It quite simply earned its name because it's beak looks like an old Dutch wooden shoe. Its massive. Native to central Africa, the Shoebill has carved out its ecological niche as a predator and plays a key role in maintaining freshwater ecosystems. It is a large bird that preys on anything from tilapia, lungfish to lizards and small crocodiles. The Shoebill is a prized sighting by many bird watchers and now we know why. In this week's podcast we cover everything Shoebill. From their natural history, ecological impacts, their physiology, reproduction and behavior. This is an incredible bird that will bring a smile to your face.

    Episode 205:Wolves and Indigenous Peoples Rights to Nature

    Episode 205:Wolves and Indigenous Peoples Rights to Nature

    We bring you a special interview with Sierra Club's Bonnie Rice and the Executive Director of the Global Indigenous Council Rain Bear Stands Last. We spend a fascinating hour not only addressing grey wolves in the Americas, but also how conservation intertwines with the rights of indigenous peoples. This is a new take for us on conservation and a critical one. As we all work together around the globe to save our environment and all the species that inhabit it, we also need to respect and engage those living in these areas. We are so grateful to the Sierra Club and Global Indigenous Council for their keen insight.

    Episode 204: All About American Black Bears

    Episode 204: All About American Black Bears

    One of the more iconic species of the Americas, the Black Bear, is an animal that inhabits many people's backyards. This often timid bear, has adapted due to its incredible intelligence to living side by side people. So much so that they are an actual conservation success story. Once decimated in the late 1800s, the American Black Bear has bounced back, despite losing much of its historical range. In this week's podcast we learn about another amazing bear species. We talk everything Black Bear, with even some comparisons with its cousins the brown (grizzly) bear, polar bear, and many others.

    Episode 203: The Peculiar Pink Fairy Armadillo

    Episode 203: The Peculiar Pink Fairy Armadillo

    We have covered some strange and exotic animals and this one is near the top of the list. This cute little creature, the Pink Fairy Armadillo is from South America. Weighing less than 120 grams and at less than 5 inches in length, this armadillo has carved its niche in central Argentina. While their physiology may seem bizarre, for millions of years the Pink Fairy Armadillo has survived for thousands and thousands of years. We had another fun week covering an obscure species in dire need. While we do not have hard data on this little animal, data indicates they may be endangered and heading towards extinction. They deserve our attention and love. Plus, come on, Pink Fairy, Armadillo. Fantastic!

Absolutely amazing!

I’m an Environmental Science major who wants to go into wildlife biology, and this is the most wonderful and educational podcast I have ever come across! I look forward to listening and learning about a new animal everyday, and Chris and Angie always make me smile. I truly look up to them, and their incredible amount of knowledge about these creatures is so admirable. You can tell they put a ton of effort and research into each episode. I can’t recommend this podcast enough!!
