Wyoming Public Radio News has been awarded a 2019 National Edward R. Murrow award in the small market category for Best Use of Sound. 🥳 It was for Cooper McKim's story, "Scientists Race To Research Stonefly Species Threatened By Climate Change." The piece follows a group of scientists on a field expedition up and down a mountain in the Teton Range in search of answers. The "Alpine Stream Dream Team" is collecting the basic natural history of a glacial stonefly sensitive to warming water temperatures. The species survival could help inform scientists about its entire ecosystem's health. McKim covers energy and natural resource issues and said he wanted the story to feel like an adventure. "To do that, I made sure each scene had a unique ambient sound, along with casual remarks from the scientists to hold listeners in the moment. I'm thrilled the diverse sound and candor from the scientists helped tell this important and continuing story," explained McKim. Read more on our website.

Tanzania’s Rubondo Island is one the most beautiful island national parks in the world. It’s a one-of-a-kind and virtually untouched destination where elephant roam wild, colorful birds and butterflies flit through the indigenous rainforest, and the waters teem with hippo, crocodile and the iconic Nile perch. Crucially, it’s also home to the world’s fastest growing population of chimpanzee. We’ve teamed up with MakeMake Films to bring more awareness to this incredible place and are sponsoring a documentary about the island’s history and the story of the chimpanzee, from their arrival on the island to the present day. Above is a taster of what’s to come…. Now, film making isn’t cheap! The crew are following wild chimpanzee through the forests of an extremely remote place and then of course there’s all the editing and production that follows. If you would like to make a donation, please click on the link on our bio – every little helps and we would be so grateful! Alternatively, if you have any questions or would like to be involved in the project, please send us a message on Instagram or Facebook and we’ll get back to you.
My friend and coworker just spotted a red tailed hawk. As far as I know they are endangered so, it’s pretty awesome to see one just chilling in the tree. Just wish it was a better picture is all. 🦅🌲🤘🏻👌🏻👍🏻👊🏻

We are 🍀 Nuts About Conservation 🌳 . 💫 P H O T O by @sebastiaanvandergreef . . S P E C I E S: Jaguar (Panthera onca)🐆. . S T A T U S: Near Threatened. . F A C T S: The jaguar is the largest cat in the Americas. The jaguar has a compact body, a broad head and powerful jaws. Its coat is normally yellow and tan, but the color can vary from reddish brown to black. The spots on the coat are more solid and black on the head and neck and become larger rosette-shaped patterns along the side and back of the body. Today, jaguars have been almost completely eliminated from the United States. . D I D Y O U K N O W: . The jaguar is the third-largest living feline species, after the tiger and lion. . Jaguars are known to eat deer, peccary, crocodiles, snakes, monkeys, deer, sloths, tapirs, turtles, eggs, frogs, fish and anything else they can catch. . TOP REASONS FOR DECLINE: The species is threatened by loss and fragmentation of jaguar habitat, conflict with local people due to the real or perceived threat posed to livestock, and overhunting of the jaguar’s prey by local people. . C O N S E R V A T I O N: WWF has worked with the government of Brazil to successfully protect large blocks of Amazon forest for the jaguar. In Peru, WWF continues to track jaguars to learn more about their habitat requirements. . . Posted by @Vinay.r.gowda . Check out the Bio Link for more info 🔝 .
