Prairie Dogs! On our super duper special episode of Varmints this week, we have our first ever bona fide animal expert! Dr. Seth Magle from the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago talking about prairie dogs! The Urban Wildlife Institute conducts research intended to minimize conflict between humans and animals in urban surroundings. They have some great projects underway, and you can even get involved in citizen science and help them out by identifying animals in their database of sneaky secret squirrel cams all around the city of Chicago. We’ve done this at Varmints! podcast, it’s super cool, fun, and is a great way to contribute to research that really matters. Check it out at the Chicago Wildlife Watch. Maybe these guys are getting a little too comfy.
