Episode Description

Today, Mitch and Tom are joined by Dr. Enric Sala who is the National Geographic explorer in residence and director of Pristine Seas. Join them as they talk about biodiversity and the wild and just why they are so important. Why do we need sharks and wolves and how does their impact benefit us directly? What does the future of conservation look like and will the standard practice change? The coronavirus epidemic has been a shock to the world but what do we stand to learn from it and how can we take this and move forward in a productive way?
