    Conservation Matters- Evolving a Scientist with Dr. Chuck Smith

    Conservation Matters- Evolving a Scientist with Dr. Chuck Smith

    What makes a young explorer develop a passion for science? How do childhood experiences create a spark of wonder and curiosity that propel people to pursue a lifetime of study? How have scientists used this spark to help grow our knowledge of and affinity for the natural world and drive conservation?
    Conservation Matters is a recurring theme where we meet scientists, engineers, foresters, educators, science communicators, filmmakers, and all sorts of folks in the Village to find out just how our youth evolve into conservation-focused professionals. We'll learn about their research, their youthful spark, and how these translate into conservation.
    In this episode, we'll meet with Dr. Charles "Chuck" Smith of Wofford College and the Copperhead Institute. Dr. Smith is an expert in many areas but in this episode, we'll learn a bit about his research into Agkistrodon contortrix, the copperhead snake and what that revealed about climate and drought.

    Introducing the Village Voices podcast from Project Imo. In Village Voices, we'll explore the concept of relational conservation, a holistic view of the connection between healthy human relationships with each other and with nature. 
    If this sounds like the kind of learning journey you’d like to take with us, we’d love to have you along. The trails may be winding, but we like it that way. You never know what you’ll learn around the next bend.
