It got us thinking about just how awesome beavers really are. We spend a lot of time talking about them with our Living With Wildlife campaign, but we’ve also explored the roles beavers play in the world through Defender Radio.
As our ongoing Canada Day celebrations continue this week check out some of the best interviews we’ve had on Defender Radio by following the links below!
Beavers in space? Not quite. But we did connect with a climatologist from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab about the role beavers play in the California drought and their vital importance moving forward.
Our good friend Dr. Heidi Perryman was on hand at the 2015 State of the Beaver conference in Oregon, where top experts and advocates gathered to talk about recent changes in technology, science and more.
Professor Michael Runtz joined Defender Radio to talk about his time studying beaver families as a naturalist, the beautiful photos he’s captured over the years, and the release of his must-have book, Dam Builders.
Two interviews built this terrific episode, including Simon Jones of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, who played a vital role in reintroducing beavers to the Scottish landscape after a 300-year absence, and filmmaker Sarah Koenigsberg, who is soon to launch her documentary, Beaver Believers.
