In this episode of the podcast, I chat with Kim Wheeler, the Executive Director of The Red Wolf Coalition. We speak about the last of the Red Wolves in existence, the struggle of getting people to not fear Red Wolves, and the dangers of her job as a wolf defender (she has been run off the road by another car, no kidding).

Quick note, I asked Kim a few very specific questions about Red Wolf population trends, releases, and mortality, and she directed me to U.S Fish and Wildlife's great new website on Red Wolves. To see releases over time, scroll halfway down to the Summary of releases section.

Rick Ridgeway could be one of the most incredible people I have spoken with.

He's the man The Rolling Stones called "the real Indiana Jones. He's the 2008 recipient of National Geographic’s “Lifetime Achievement in Adventure”. He's a lifelong adventurer, filmmaker of over 30 documentaries, has climbed virtually all of the world's highest peaks on all continents—including Everest. He had the third summit of K2, a climb more dangerous than Everest. He's the former VP of Public Engagement at Patagonia and author of six mountaineering classics, including most recently, his recent incredibly emotional, evocative, and incredibly inspiring memoir Life Lived Wild.
