A great and fun way to keep up on conservation issues

It is great having podcast that keeps me up to date and knowledgeable about issues related to conservation. I just don’t have the time or expertise to read and evaluate the issues like Gabriella does. Her show is not only informative, it is fun and easy to listen to. Thanks Gabriella for sharing your expertise, personality, and love of the outdoors with the rest of us.
