Podcast: Saving wolves that aren ’t really wolves, bird-human partnership, and our oldest common ancestor
Stories on birds that guide people to honey, genes leftover from the last universal common ancestor, and what the nose knows about antibiotics, with Devi Shastri. The Endangered Species Act —a 1973 U.S. law designed to protect animals in the country from extinction—may need a fresh look. The focus on “species” is the problem. This has become especially clear when it comes to wolves—recent genetic information has led to government agencies moving to delist the gray wolf.
