With this episode we celebrated several firsts: our biggest hangout to date (all 6 of us in one little video), our first return guest (Suzi), and our first guest joining us from Africa (Laurie, from her office at the Cheetah Conservation Fund, in Namibia). To celebrate we had a very stimulating conversation about extinction and animal conservation, featuring the passenger pigeon and the cheetah.
Today’s guests were Dr. Laurie Marker, founder of The Cheetah Conservation Fund and Suzi Eszterhas, author and photographer of A Future for Cheetahs; and David Mrazek and Joel Greenberg, co-writers, co-producers, and director (David) of the documentary film, “From Billions to None: The Passenger Pigeon’s Flight to Extinction“. Let’s also mention Joel’s book, A Feathered River Across the Sky: The Passenger Pigeon’s Flight to Extinction
