George Dante - Wildlife Artist

Love science and conservation? Want to discover new ways to protect our species? Elle Kaye chats with guests who work within the science genre, but whose job titles may need a little unpacking. Strap in for entomology, taxidermy, diaphonization, pet remains, human pathology and all those that work with specimens. In episode 011, Elle chats with George about starting his career in his parent’s basement, to becoming an internationally recognised wildlife artist with clients like the American Natural History Museum, National Geographic and Oxford University, working with Lonesome George, and the incredible highs and the lows of the job.  George Dante www.wildlifepreservations.com www.instagram.com/georgedante Edward Wilson Theory of Biophilia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biophilia_hypothesis Lonesome George https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lonesome_George George Dante’s work with Lonesome George https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZKbO2B7po0 https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/lonesome-george-the-last-of-his-kind-strikes-his-final-pose/ https://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/lonesome-george/lonesome-george-at-the-museum ‘Stuffed’ Documentary on Amazon Prime https://www.amazon.com/Stuffed-Allis-Markham/dp/B083R1Z27H Bryan Christy and Tracking Ivory https://www.nationalgeographic.com/tracking-ivory/article.html https://blog.nationalgeographic.org/2017/05/09/how-saving-elephants-got-one-national-geographic-explorer-arrested/ ­Elle Kaye Socials www.instagram.com/ellekayetaxidermy www.ellekayetaxidermy.co.uk Specimens Pod www.twitter.com/specimenspod https://linktr.ee/specimenspod www.instagram.com/specimenspod Merch https://www.ellekayetaxidermy.co.uk/product-page/specimenspodmerch Artwork © 2020 Madison Erin Mayfield  http://madisonerinmayfield.com/ https://www.instagram.com/madisonerinmayfield/ Music Giraffes – Harrison Amer via PremiumBeat.com  Edited and Produced by Elle Kaye Concept/Title © 2020 Elle Kaye
