Living with wildlife, Part 1

Pacific Southwest Forest Service

When humans went into hibernation during the pandemic, animals came out to play. Wildlife enjoyed parks, reserves, and even urban environments that were essentially people-free.

That human hiatus is now over. And people are back in the great outdoors in pre-pandemic numbers — alongside wildlife. Do we need to rethink how we humans co-exist with our animal neighbors?

This week's guests:

  • Annie Hornish, Connecticut state Director of The Humane Society of the United States
  • David Michel, Connecticut state Representative of Stamford, and member of the Environment Committee
  • Jenny Dickson, director of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection's Wildlife Division
