Episode 283: Ba Ba Ba…Babirusa

June 22, 2022

One of the most unique and striking mammals has to be the Babirusa. Native to four islands in Indonesia, this member of the swine family is one of the most ancient and often misunderstood. The Babirusa is heading towards extinction but thankfully groups within and outside Indonesia are fighting hard to save these unique animals. This week we highlight what we know about the Babirusa, what makes it a unique animal and why we need to keep fighting to save them. We then talk all about those tusks, what they are thought to be important for and much much more. Another fun species to learn and chat about.
