11 – Zoos and Wildlife Conservation



This month’s episode of Shelf Understanding focuses on efforts by two local organizations who care for both exotic and native animals.  Host Danny Rice and this month’s co-host Marion Archer talk to Adrienne Bauer of Wildlife Prairie Park and Jay Tetzloff of the Miller Park Zoo.  We’ll learn about conservation efforts at both locations and how the zoo’s snow leopards get along (spoiler alert: surprisingly well).  Ever wanted to know what a spider monkey does when handed a lime?  Listen to find out!
