Jacque Cousteau of land animals

Beautiful detailed coverage of animals and the people researching and fighting to conserve them in our modern world. I enjoy listening to your voice and well chosen, poetic even, words you use in the telling. Reminds me of Cousteau. We must fight to keep our wild spaces and wild co-inhabitants of this earth. Please keep sharing. Thank you.
