Dive into another captivating episode of The Backyard Naturalists! This week, we're thrilled to sit down with Hannah O’Carroll, a dedicated Park Ranger from Key Largo, Florida, bringing her expertise from Wildlife Conservation at NC State University and roles in wildlife rehabilitation and veterinary care. With listeners spanning 107 countries, 50 states, and the Carolinas, our podcast, a proud recipient of the Best of the Weeklies award, unites nature enthusiasts globally.
Join hosts Debbie and Laurie as they engage Hannah in a fascinating discussion on East Coast shark species, tips for safer human-shark coexistence, declining shark populations, and the success of tracking efforts. Hannah’s firsthand experience as a Park Ranger with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection lends unique insights to this crucial conservation dialogue. From the Carolinas to Key Largo, we're your bridge to the wonders of the natural world.
We start this episode by talking about creating wildlife habitats. That initial episode of Creating Wildlife Habitats is still in the top three listened episodes for us. These principles have overlapped with almost every episode we've had. It's a really good guiding network for us to keep in mind.
