Tayra, Monito del Monte, Zoonotic diseases, African elephants, Welsh Beavers and White Storks

In episode 11, Robi and I ramble about our animals of the week- I talk about the tayra and Robi talks about the tiny Monito del Monte. We each tackle large global conservation topics including zoonotic diseases and the lessons we can learn from the Covid 19 pandemic. Robi discusses why the taxonomic classification of African elephant species is important! For our UK conservation topics I talk about the very exciting reintroduction of beavers to Wales for the first time in 400 years. Robi talks about the fantastic white stork project and our recent interview with the wonderful conservationist and project manager of the white stork project Lucy Groves. 

We hope you enjoy our latest ramble- here are the links to some of the resources used in the Zoonotic diseases section if you wanted to read more about the Manhattan and Berlin principles.
