This Thursday, February 26, at 5 p.m. PST, Wildlife Matters #5 will air on kmud.  In this episode we talk about Sea Otters, the keystone species of the kelp forests of the North Pacific.  We hear from Dr. Jane Watson, of the Vancouver Aquarium, and Dr. James Estes, professor at U.C. Santa Cruz.  If you enjoy breathing, and want to stop climate change, you’ll appreciate learning about the surprisingly large role this carnivore could play in keeping the world hospitable to life as we know it.  Tune in to, or look for it on this blog, or at Wildlife Matters Radio Show on facebook.
