Wild For Life

Jun 26, 2019

Maria Franke, Manager of Welfare Science at the Toronto Zoo, sits down with me to discuss the conservation of the black-footed ferret and the Vancouver Island marmot, which are two species that are considered to be Species At Risk. The black-footed ferrets are Endangered and the Vancouver Island marmots are critically endangered. 

 During the episode, Maria tells you why the species’ population has decreased over the past number of years and what the Zoo, and its partners, are doing to not only protect the species, but also repopulate them in their respective habitat.
