    In this mini-episode (part 2 of 2) Joey explains what the Biological Species Concept is, why it's important to consider, and how species designation affects the Endangered Species Act's protections.  Also, we hear a bit about the first findings from this past field season on the Gulf Coast, what we'd do with a billion dollars, and Joey's thoughts on the red wolf's villain.

    What Do All Those Terms Mean?

    What Do All Those Terms Mean?

    In this mini-episode (part 1 of 2) Amy welcomes Dr. Van Remsen, an ornithologist, to the show to help explain some science terms that get thrown around a lot in these recent episodes discussing the Gulf Coast Canine Project and Red Wolf Project. We hope this helps all those non-biologists out there who listen to the show and... bear with us, Van is Amy's husband and they are sharing a mic! :)

    A Magical Island in Texas

    A Magical Island in Texas

    Amy Shutt and Dr. Joey Hinton introduce Joey's project colleagues Dr. Kristin Brzeski of Michigan Tech ( https://www.brzeskilab.com ), the P.I. of the Gulf Coast Canine Project and her research partner and the P.I. of the North American Canine Ancestry Project Dr. Bridgett vonHoldt of Princeton ( https://www.northamericancanineancestry ). Join us as they tell the story of how a little magical coastal island in southeast Texas led to the current scientific study of the coastal canids of Louisiana who hold important remnants of the extirpated, and critically endangered, Red Wolf in their genetics. What could this discovery hold for contemporary conservation strategies of endangered wildlife?

Benbpilot ,

Good start!

Thank you for making this podcast. I hope this will be a part of bringing the public’s attention to Red Wolves and their battle to exist. After listening to the first one, I liked the brief history of the wolf In Louisiana and Texas. The interview with Joey, about his recent study, was informative. In the future I am looking forward to discussion on getting this reintroduction back on track.
