In this podcast, I chat with Ben Stone of The Phoenix Conservancy, who talks about how he connects with people disinterested in conservation, how he balances consideration of the amount of the ecosystem remaining, direct threats, and opportunities before engaging in any projects, and how the Trump administration has had a particularly interesting effect on his non-profit.
In this podcast episode, Craig and I speak about his storied career as a conservationist, his work with Dian Fossey, the successful trend of African mountain gorillas, the role of eco-tourism in the mountain gorillas population rise, and how the African Wildlife Foundation helps both African wildlife as well as the local inhabitants on a daily basis.
Today I'm joined by Tim Holbrook of Masonboro Reserve Oyster Co, who, among other things, chats about why North Carolina—which could be the Napa Valley of oysters—is lagging behind Virginia in oyster production, how his farm was impacted by Hurricane Florence, and why you actually can eat oysters in months that don't have an "R".
I sit down with Sam Blount, of Front Line Freediving, one of the best dive shops in Wilmington, North Carolina. Sam is a freediving rockstar, and blows my mind on multiple occasions throughout the interview with his extensive knowledge, skills and experience.
