Outrage – A tiger in captivity in a truck stop! However… it’s never that simple. In relation to a similar topic and controversy, I highly recommend listening to an outstanding podcast episode by Radiolab, called “The Rhino Hunter”
“Each year, Yellowstone attracts millions of visitors and provides a home to countless animal species, including the once-threatened grizzly bear and bison. But finding the right balance between tourism and preservation can be tricky.”
A very interesting interview with David Quammen about the history and the challenges that Yellowstone National Park faces.
This one is from the archives. I’ve listened to it when it first aired and then again… and again. Would love to go to the Galapagos, therefore any opportunity to know more about the place is welcomed. This is the best documentary on the Galapagos I have ever watched/listened to. But this episode is more than just a documentary, it is yet another Man vs Nature saga.
“The strange story of a small group of islands that raise a big question: is it inevitable that even our most sacred natural landscapes will eventually get swallowed up by humans? And just how far are we willing to go to stop that from happening? The Galapagos archipelago – the place that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution and natural selection. 179 years later, the Galapagos are undergoing rapid changes.”
Great story on the attempted murder of a tree! Sure I was skeptical before listening to it. But it was a fascinating episode and I truly enjoyed it. My advise: don’t let the topic deter you!
“The 500-year-old Treaty Oak in Austin, Texas was once called “the most perfect specimen of a North American tree.” But in 1989, Austin’s city forester realized that the Treaty Oak didn’t look so good, and began to wonder whether someone had intentionally tried to kill it.”
“This Valentine’s Day, a mysterious tap tap tapping leads us into a world of sex, death, and head-banging. Biologist Dave Goulson introduces us to the lonely yearnings of an especially pathetic beetle and snatches a sound back from the hands of the devil himself.”
A symbol that stands for ideas about human life and experiences! Happy Valentine’s Day!
