Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, Mitch and Tom take a look at endangered species! What and why are species considered endangered and who gets to make that decision? The IUCN red list denotes those species that we should pay close attention to, but how do species make it on and off the list, and how do governments use that list? Mitch takes a look at the main reasons that cause population decline and Tom takes a look at the different strategies that can be used to help conserve populations. Do you think that it’s ethical to abandon some species to extinction in an effort to save others? Join the debate with #ConductScience.
