A few weeks ago, we started releasing episodes of Speaking of Sustainability, our environmentally-focused podcast. So far we’ve released 7 episodes, with 3 more to go until the end of the season. Each episode we explore biodiversity related topics with our guest of the week, hearing their perspective and how they contribute to helping our planet. If you’re interested, here’s a brief summary of each episode to pique your interest:

Corridors of the Rainforest: A Discussion with Vijo Varghese: We talk with Vijo Varghese on the rainforest corridor, and how Vijo and his team are trying to keep it clear for animals to pass through without humans disturbing them.
