Conservation News, Short-eared dog, Little Black Tapir, Vaquita update and Rice's Whale

In Episode 13 of Zoology Ramblings, we introduce a new section called "conservation news" where Robi and I each talk about a recent positive conservation news story. We discuss our animals of the week: I decided to talk about the illusive, weird short-eared dog (thanks @wayne_wildlife for the suggestion) and Robi talks about the Little Black Tapir and whether this is in fact a new species or not. We then delve deeper into some wider conservation stories where I give a sad update about the status of Vaquitas and Robi talks about the newly discovered, yet already critically endangered Rice's Whale.
