This week in episode 10 of Zoology Ramblings we talk about an animal of the week each: Robi talks about the Sunda Island Tigers and throws in a bit of epic tiger taxonomy and palaeontology! I talk about the Laysan Albatross following an article about the world's oldest wild bird 'Wisdom' who has just had her 37th chick! For our UK conservation stories, Robi talks about the majestic Eagle Owl in Britain and how a mysterious group of them has 're-appeared' in the UK. I talk about the controversial Coal mine proposal in Cumbria and whether this is a good idea in the face of a climate emergency where we should be moving away from our reliance on fossil fuels. For our global conservation story, we discuss coral aquaculture/ coral gardening which is offering hope for re-building and recovering coral reefs threatened by global warming and bleaching events.
