In this episode, I have a sit-down Q & A session with wildlife rehabilitator, Mady Rothchild, from Animals In Distress Association. Mady has been working with native, North American wildlife for over 33 years. We answer submitted wildlife questions and talk about animals that live in our own backyards. Topics include what to do if you find a baby bird, raccoons as pets, badgers and if they are a threat to humans and pets, encounters with snakes, and how to coexist with animals in our backyards.

In this episode, I interview award-winning author and conservationist Carl Safina. He's the author of seven books and his latest, Beyond Words: How Animals Think and Feel is a New York Times Bestseller. In the book, Carl shares extraordinary stories of animals and their consciousness, self-awareness and empathy and their similarities to humans. 

We discuss Carl's early beginnings and what led him to become an author. We then dive into the book's three focal point animals: Elephants, Wolves, and Killer Whales. Other discussions include his thoughts on elephants in captivity, trophy hunting, the irrational fear of wolves, his favorite wildlife encounter, and his viral TED Talk: What Other Animals Are Thinking And Feeling.
