CELEBRATION OF NATURE SERIES:
NATURE 4 ALL—a.k.a. BIRDING WHILE BLACK
Saturday morning's Eco-Logic, June 3rd, is going to be a lot of fun. This is part of our ongoing Celebration of Nature series. We bring you our interview with Christian Cooper and J. Drew Lanham whose enthusiasm for birds and nature is infectious. Their stories are entertaining and often thought-provoking. Nature is for everyone! Chris now has a show on the National Geographic channel, but he's been on Eco-Logic quite a few times, going back to 2002, not long after Eco-Logic started.
Chris Cooper’s name might be familiar to you because of the viral video of the now famous incident in Central Park when a woman walking her dog off-leash made a 911 call full of lies, seeming to try to get Chris beaten up — or worse — by the police. The video went viral after being published by his sister. It was probably Chris’ honesty, grace, charisma and nice-guy presence that landed him his current National Geographic show.
J. Drew Lanham, a Professor of Wildlife Ecology, teaches at Clemson University in South Carolina and won the MacArthur Fellows Program, commonly called a MacArthur Genius Award, for his work “combining conservation science with personal, historical, and cultural narratives of nature”. His joy of nature was so much fun and the way Chris and Drew played off one another made the show all the more fun. The entire one-hour show will be available in video form on the Best of BAI thumb drive along with other Eco-Logic interviews and 8 environmental songs.
In that video, Eco-Logic Collective Member Charlie Olson of TheEnvironmentTV, included photos of the birds to go with the stories Chris and Drew told about their birding adventures. It’s a beautiful video, available to you as a premium on give2wbai.org - it’s called Nature 4 All.
Tune in to hear our news, information, and environmental music. We have good news about solar energy, the Right to Repair, and WordPress considering sustainability, information about a new attack on Cop City activists, a report from the shareholders’ meeting of the Southern Company in Atlanta, our interview with NY State Senator Pete Harckham, a rally in Albany to stop Holtec's dumping of radioactive waste into the Hudson, and the NJ opposition to fossil-fuel projects!
Join us again at our regular time, Saturday June 10 at 6...a.m.
