A star is born: researchers successfully mature critically-endangered sunflower sea stars
In 2013, a plague of sea star wasting disease began killing scores of west coast sea stars. Hit hardest was the sunflower sea star, the largest of its kind, whose population was decimated by close to 90 percent. But thanks to folks like Jason Hodin, lead scientist at the University of Washington Friday Harbor Marine Biology Lab, the sunflower star is making a rebound in captivity, a vital development that could save our coastal kelp forests.
The outdoors should be a reprieve from racism. They're not.
You might think of the outdoors as an opportunity to escape human problems like racism. Yet, 77 percent of national park visitors are white, and racist place names permeate many of our favorite recreation sites. Bill Radke speaks with Crystal Huddleson and Michael Manuel from the local non-profit Climbers of Color about the need to confront racism in outdoor recreation.
Hope springs eternal for the endangered sunflower sea star
Researchers in the San Juan Islands have successfully matured a brood of captive sunflower sea stars, which became critically endangered after a 2013 plague killed 90 percent of the giant ocean creatures. Also, we discuss the need to combat racism and diversify outdoor recreation. Lastly, our weekly conversation with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.
One man’s ‘nuisance’ beaver, is another’s hero
For those who have had beavers destroy property, the word ‘nuisance’ may come to mind when describing the rodent.
A solution to save southern resident killer whales
The killer whale population is the only whale listed as endangered by the federal government – only 75 of them remain.
Love it more with Ms. Yandel
Listen to The Record for local politics but sometimes irritated by the kinds of questions Radke and Reynolds ask. They seem kind of oblivious to their privilege in a lot of ways and awkward in conversation with their guests. They don’t connect with their BIPOC guests and ask questions that really show they don’t get it. As a Latina, I think if you really want the record to appeal to more women and BIPOC folks, you need to change the hosts. The questions are often way too cringeworthy. Jeanie Yandel has a really good rapport, more inflection and is more interesting to listen to than the usual hosts. She also is bringing more women and BIPOC voices to the shows. To be honest, I usually use this podcast to fall asleep but with her as a host I’m actually interested and curious and it’s much much less dry. I hope they keep her and give her a lot more opportunities to host.
Great news source for American hating leftists
Biased coverage on a daily basis. Shoving degenerate transgender lifestyles as the norm, corrupting families by stating they should embrace their 4 year olds transgenderism. Now pushing pedophilia as a normalized sexual orientation, redefining these people as MAPs “minor attracted persons”. Never ending leftist lies and propaganda.
