Out Now: Episode 11 of the Mammalwatching Podcast – Lisa Dabek
In the latest podcast episode, Jon Hall and I interview Dr. Lisa Dabek about her incredible 25 year study of the Matschie’s tree-kangaroo in the Huon Peninsula, Papua New Guinea. She describes the difficulties of finding tree-kangaroos and how they’ve worked with the local communities to set up highly successful hunting free zones, where mammal populations are flourishing. Jon and I go weak at the knees listening to Lisa discuss the mammal species that can be seen in the area, and her dreams to see all 14 tree-kangaroo species. We also discover a highly innovative method to ensure that Jon retains his crown as the world’s most successful mammalwatcher.
Here is the YouTube trailer.
