The Specialist: Snake Lady & Wildlife One

Aug 8, 2016

San Francisco International Airport is built on dozens of acres of wetlands, and it’s home to many species of birds. Unfortunately for those birds, it's also home to many, many airplanes. That means it’s someone’s job to  keep these flying creatures and flying objects out of each other’s way. 

Producers Leila Day and Casey Miner tell us more in this episode of The Specialist.

NATALIE REEDER: I wish we could prevent more of it from happening—either them getting killed by planes or them getting shot because they're posing a hazard to planes—those two things are the same thing.
