This episode of Star Warsologies explores the world of conservation biology.

Joining us in our discussion of wildlife conservation in the galaxy far, far away is Sam Wynns, a conservation biologist and science educator for Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego. In a huge galaxy, how would you select which places and species to protect? With all the interplanetary travel, are there any native species left? How do sarlaccs reproduce? Is there a real world explanation for why wampas and tauntauns are so large? We also learn why New Zealand is tops in protecting their unique habitats, and see who can make better tauntaun sounds! Check out this episode on Star Wars & conservation biology and find out!

In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic, scientific, or technological by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It's a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars!
