This Thursday, October 27, Wildlife Matters looks at the Humboldt Marten.  Once feared extinct, they were recently rediscovered in Six Rivers National Forest and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.  They used to be numerous throughout the “fog belt” of coastal old growth Redwoods, Doug-fir and Sitka forests, from Sonoma to the Oregon border. Now they number less than a hundred.  To find out more about these small carnivores of the Mustelid family, tune in to http://www.kmud.org this Thursday, October 27.

The Living Earth Connection # 19 airs today

Posted in Community Radio, Ecology, Humboldt County, Media with tags , , , , on July 31, 2016 by Amy Gustin

The Living Earth Connection #19 airs today, Sunday, July 31 2016, at 9:30 a.m. WST on kmud.org/ 91.1 and 88.1 FM. In today’s show I focus on the massive expansion of the marijuana industry in Humboldt County, called the Green Rush.  This agricultural and industrial expansion, located in valuable habitat, devastates the environment.  The fragmentation and degradation of habitat by Humboldt’s marijuana industry, has accelerated in recent years.  This ecological devastation is the outer manifestation of a deep spiritual sickness.  In today’s show I perform an intention ceremony to end the Green Rush and steer this region toward Life’s highest possibilities for the land, the wildlife, and the people.  Please tune in.
