What in the hell are we doing? It’s time to consolidate support for a moonshot mandate for conservation. If you know me, have followed JournOwl.com since the beginning, or have been in any conversation with me at a wildlife conference, you have heard my screed on protecting wildlife – specifically burrowing owls. I transformed a website to a movement to a national, hands-on organization that saves wildlife and habitat in urban and suburban environments. However, it just wasn’t quite enough!
On August 1, 2017, JournOwl.com is launching The Angry Conservationist Show, a weekly podcast discussing the latest in wildlife and habitat conservation news, stories and opinion with occasional guests spanning thought leaders and nonprofit, grassroots organizations. The show will be available on platforms including iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Tune In, BluBrry, and many more.
I needed an outlet beyond social media to reach the masses, to have more impactful and in depth discussions about wildlife conservation, and highlight the work that happens each day across the world by grassroots nonprofit organizations – small organizations that often struggle to have their voices heard, communicate their efforts, and grow support.
The Angry Conservationist Show is the next step in JournOwl.com’s evolution and is designed to reinvigorate the popular site that has been neglected over the years as my conservation work with Urban Bird Foundation and Burrowing Owl Conservation Network expanded.
On May 1st, please check out the show on iTunes, leave a review and click the subscribe button while you are there. Your help is the only way a podcast maintains visibility in iTunes and it is our goal to be listed as “New and Noteworthy” – giving us that extra edge for success, building an audience, and spreading the importance of wildlife conservation. And if you know an organization that could benefit from exposure, please drop me a note via the website, email, Twitter or Facebook as I am always looking for inspirational people and grassroots nonprofits to interview.
Please visit our newly launched Facebook page for the latest information about the show. Now let’s save wildlife!
