Get inspired by amazing leaders on the forefront of nature conservation! Each episode I interview ecologists, educators, researchers, conservationists, birders, ecotourism leaders and generally interesting people who have made a difference in conserving the natural world! By listening to the podcast you'll be introduced to unique guests who often take the road less traveled to make an impact. We'll discuss not only what they did, but HOW and WHY they did it, and try to abstract out important lessons that others can apply in their own journey. And to top it off, you'll learn fascinating stories of the plants and animals all around us.Whether you want to make a difference just in your own life, in your family's lives, in your community, or across the world, you'll hear from authors, biologists, non-profit leaders, and interesting people who defy categorization.My name is Michael Hawk, and I’ve worked in tech in Silicon Valley for about the last 20 years. Over this time, I’ve had an interest in hiking and nature photography, which developed into a smoldering desire to learn more about the interconnections of the plants and animals I was seeing. As I learned more, the more concerned I became for the health of the environment and the cultural and political decisions being made.Over the last few years, I’ve found there are many more just like me who want to learn more about not just the ecology that surrounds them, but also how to make a difference in the busy world that we live.Please join me in this journey. And I'd love to get your feedback and evolve the show to provide more of what YOU want. Thank you!
