There is still time to save wolves and re-list them back on the Endangered Species list!

Anthropomorphism And How It Impacts Our Understanding Of Animals

National Geographic Photographer Joel Sartore
00:47:21

In this episode, I interview world-renowned photographer, speaker, author, and conservationist, Joel Sartore. Joel has been working with the National Geographic for over 30 years. He has visited over 40 countries and photographed thousands of different species. He founded the National Geographic Photo Ark. It’s a multiyear effort to document every species living in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts. To date he has photographed 11.500 species. His goal is to reach 20,000 species!

As you’ll find out in the interview, Joel initially reached out to me to photograph two of my animals. “Irwin” my Solomon Island Tree Skink and my Blue Panay Tarantula. It turns out Irwin, my skink I’ve had for 13 years, is quite rare! A taxonomist came back and said Irwin was a Solomon Islands Tree Skink, Corucia zebrata, ‘Malaita form’. Irwin is likely a southern form of this skink with possible mixed heritage.

Episode #87: The "Big Bad Wolf"
01:06:22

For well over a millennia, wolves have been depicted as ferocious, blood thirsty, monsters. In reality, wolves are intelligent animals that are much more similar to us than once thought. They are also a vital part of the ecosystem that keep prey populations healthy and in check.

We discuss a variety of different topics including wolf predation on livestock, “surplus killing”, elk fatalities, and wolf hunting.
