Your Call: What’s the importance of protecting animals in urban areas?

moses_w_zooburbia.jpg

 On the July 21st, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Tai Moses, author of Zooburbia: Meditations on the Wild Animals Among Us. More than 80% of us live in cities or suburbs, which means many of us are cut off from nature in our daily lives. But Moses says it doesn’t have to be that way. Urban animals are all around us, so how do you connect with wildlife in your backyard? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Holly Kernan and You.

 

Guests:

Tai Moses, former senior editor at AlterNet, and nature writer

Lila Talcott-Travisco-founder and director of Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue and Education center
