In this episode, I interview actress and animal activist, Daniah De Villiers. Daniah plays Mia in the upcoming film, Mia And The White Lion. To make the film as authentic as possible, the director wanted Daniah to develop a real relationship with a REAL white lion over the span of three years for filming. Listen to hear what the experience was like working with Thor, also known as “Charlie” in the movie.

Mia And The White Lion hits theaters FRIDAY, APRIL 12 in the US.

In this episode, I interview Dr. Laurel Serieys, the founder of The Urban Caracal Project, a unique study currently looking at the effects of urbanization on caracal populations in South Africa. We begin discussing Dr. Serieys work with bobcats and cougars in Los Angeles and how that led her to Africa. We then dive into the elusive life of the caracal and how they adapt to life in the city, including the habit of preying on pets, in particular domestic cats. We end the discussion on how people can learn to co-exist with caracals and other wildlife.

In this episode, I interview Marion Holmes from the Cat Conservation Trust based out of South Africa. We discuss Africa's lesser known felines and what the trust is doing to help raise awareness about these small cats. In particular we talk about the African Black-footed Cat, the smallest and rarest of the African cats. Don't let its small size fool you: These cats are tenacious little predators that desperately need our help!
