Episode Eight

Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists

On this episode, we travel to California’s Catalina Island where we’re continuing our quest to celebrate women in science. And what better way to do that than by celebrating science teachers? The very people who are inspiring the next generation of scientists, communicators, and champions for the environment. Hear about the experience of four educators working alongside researchers studying the effectiveness and health of Marine Protected Areas, all the while making the science come alive for their students. To learn more about the research being conducted on Catalina, visit the project’s website: Conserving Marine Life Along Catalina’s Coast.

Never a Dhole Moment with Dr. Nucharin Songsasen

In this episode, we’re continuing to celebrate women in science by bringing you to Thailand’s Khao Yai National Park where Dr. Nucharin Songsasen is working with a team of scientists to monitor the behavior and health of an elusive and endangered species of wild dog—the dhole. Nucharin shares her experience as a female scientist from Thailand working in America and the challenges and opportunities she’s had throughout her impressive career.

Courage, Conservation, and Dr. Caroline Ng’weno

In this episode, we take you to Kenya’s Maasai Mara where Earthwatch scientist Dr. Caroline Ng’weno is studying the interactions between predators, their prey, and livestock. In pursuit of her scientific endeavors, Caroline faced many hurdles, both professional and personal. But despite this she persevered. She shares her experience as a female in a male-dominated field, and how she was able to get to where she is today, thanks in part to support from Earthwatch.

Episode Five

Living Deliberately with Dr. Bill Moomaw

Dr. Bill Moomaw is quite the accomplished individual. He has lived a life dedicated to environmental policy and action through his time spent as lead author for several reports from the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to the head of the science advisory committee on Earthwatch's Board of Directors to chairing the board of the Woods Hole Research Center. He sat down with us to guide us through the ins and outs of how humans have responded to climate change over the years – from the view of society and politics – and how individuals can take action today to slow global warming. (The music in this episode is “Partly Sage” by Blue Dot Sessions, provided under the Attribution-Noncommercial License.)
