This week we deliver a special episode on the ongoing and unprecedented crisis in Australia.

Current estimates are that at least 1 billion, if not more, animals have perished in these fires. We cover the scientific data pouring out of Australia. Additionally, we cover how the world is coming together for Australia and we highlight what you can do to help.

Episode 133: Bowhead Whales, Oldest Living Mammals

January 7, 2020

We return to the Arctic to talk about the oldest living mammals on the planet, the Bowhead Whale. These incredible aquatic mammals can live well over 200 years old and were hunted to near extinction in the early 20th Century. Today, the Bowhead is on the rebound but still needs our attention as the Arctic continues to suffer due to climate change. We discuss all sorts of interesting facts, to include how they determine the whales ages, and how these whales can even benefit humanity.

The Japanese Macaque, or also known as "Snow Monkeys" are one of the world's most beloved monkeys. What makes them so iconic is the behavior of these monkeys soaking in the hot springs of Joshinetsu Kogen National Park. Covering these macaques also allows us to explore the biodiversity of Japan and all the animals inhabiting their islands. While the Snow Monkeys are not currently endangered, they have lost up to 10% of their population in a single year due to humans.
