    S2:E27 - US WOLF STATUS GOING INTO DREADED 2021 HUNTING SEASON

    This summer we released a 4-part series chronicling the war on wolves in the US from the mid 19th century through today.  If you haven't had a chance yet to listen to that series, here is a link to Episode 1.  

    Either way, this week we are providing a short update on some of the recent developments as we head into the 2021 hunting season, particularly around the problematic states such as Wisconsin, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.  We'll check in again with another episode in 2022 covering where we stand coming out of this dreaded 2021 hunt.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GO AND SIGN THE PETITIONS HERE TO GET WOLVES RE-LISTED UNDER FEDERAL PROTECTION. A BIG THANKS THE CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY FOR CONTINUING TO PUT SO MUCH INTO THESE EFFORTS.

    S2:E26 - CAN WE REMOVE MORE CARBON THAN WE EMIT?

    S2:E26 - CAN WE REMOVE MORE CARBON THAN WE EMIT?

    Is it possible to pull enough carbon out of the air to meet our emissions goals? Today on Animalia, we are talking Carbon Removal. We delve into the current state of the technology, the difference between Carbon Capture vs. Carbon Removal, and why we need clear, ambitious targets for both lower our emissions and removing carbon already in the atmosphere.

    Joining us is Rory Jacobson from Carbon180.org, an awesome NGO that is pioneering advancements in carbon removal and capture at both public and private levels to reach a goal where we are removing more carbon than we emit. We encourage you to follow them on social via the links below and if you can, make a donation to their valuable work.

    This, is the 5-minute (ish) summary of our episode How Saving Sea Stars Can Save Our Forests.

    A couple weeks ago our Animalia newsletter (subscribe here if you have not yet) we surfaced a story about the devastating 2013 sea star wasting disease that killed upwards of 90%+ of some sea star species up and down the Pacific Coast of North America, how this sea star collapse has led to severe declines in critical kelp forests, and how scientists are battling to successfully breed sea stars in captivity for the first time to restore them into the wild.    Well.....we tracked down the scientist leading that work, and he's joining us today on the pod!

    If you enjoy this summary, please go and check out the full version.

    And please go support the work of Jason and his team with a donation of any size to their Stars of the Sea Fundraiser that is providing the resources for this Herculean effort.
