    Episode 291: Pouch of Pelicans

    Episode 291: Pouch of Pelicans

    One of the most charismatic seabirds has to be the Pelican. Around the world, Pelicans fly and soar near almost every shore. There are so many surprising facts about Pelicans and how they do what they do. One of the most interesting has to be that Pelicans have not changed much over the past 30 million years! Then, their large beaks with their pouches (called a gular) has to be their most defining characteristic. What else is surprising is how the Brown Pelican, much of our focus this podcast, was heading straight towards extinction. Fortunately, conservation efforts in the Americas have seen them rebound. So much so, they have come off the species endangered list. Another fun species to learn about!

    Episode 289: Stunned by Salmon

    Episode 289: Stunned by Salmon

    Each species we have covered for Plastic Free July has blown us away. Here we are again, with a fish that just defies logic. Most salmon species start off in freshwater, then eventually migrate to the ocean and live out most their lives, then migrate back up the rivers and streams from which they were born! How do they do it? Well, this week we answer that and more. You may be asking if salmon are a sustainable food choice? Short answer, yes, but only from certain countries. There was so much to cover with this amazing species and we have no doubt you will be as stunned as we were.

    This week we are thrilled to welcome Carlee Jackson from Minorities in Shark Science (MISS). Carlee is the Director of Communications from MISS, which is an organization dedicated to increasing diversity in the shark sciences. Carlee's graduate studies in Marine Biology had her involved in tagging sharks off Florida in the USA and she has also done shark research off the coast of Belize. Carlee has also worked in sea turtle conservation and has been heavily involved in education and fighting to help preserve our oceans. This was truly a wonderful interview and one not to miss about MISS!

    Episode 287: Beguiled by Bull Sharks

    Episode 287: Beguiled by Bull Sharks

    As one of the ocean's top predators, Bull Sharks are demonized and characterized as man-killing machines. What gives this myth even more teeth is the fact that Bull Sharks can be found in many major river systems and even some freshwater lakes around the world. We fear Bull Sharks, when the statistics show Bull Sharks hardly ever attack and even kill humans. We are now harvesting nearly 100 million sharks a year from our oceans at an unsustainable rate. Thus, Bull Sharks and many of its close relatives are heading straight towards extinction. This is a fascinating species that deserves your time and understanding. There are so many astounding facts about Bull Sharks we have no doubt you will fall in love with them as we did.

    Episode 286: Mind Blown w/ Mantis Shrimp

    Episode 286: Mind Blown w/ Mantis Shrimp

    Out of all the species we have covered , none can compare to the insane adaptations of the Mantis Shrimp. Over 500 million years of evolution have produced one of the most advanced biological entities in existence. Not only do Mantis Shrimp boast the world's most advanced eyesight of any organism, they pack a punch that defies logic. Mantis Shrimp were some of the earliest organisms in existence and can be found in almost all the world's tropical and temperate oceans. This is a must listen to podcast. These animals will blow you away!

Great Podcast!

As a senior biology major in undergrad, I am always looking for ways to engage with the material I have learned in class, in real life. How cool is it that I can follow along with this team of scientists that really go into the details that make each of these animals so unique?! This podcast brings me so much joy and it is so cool to show off what I’ve learned to my family and friends about these creatures! I hope they will continue to produce episodes for many years… at least until I finish all of my schooling!!

Great Pod to Learn about Animals

I just started listening to this podcast and its great. The Salmon episode blew my socks off and I don’t particularly even care about salmon. If you want to learn about a specific animal, but are too lazy to look the information yourself, then this is a great pod to listen to.

Wonderful

Great podcast! It is overflowing with information about animals and the work chemistry between Angie and Chris is very enjoyable.

P.S. I love when Chris refers to locations in New Zealand in relation to Lord of the Rings, Hobbiton is on my bucket list.
