On Tuesday December 16th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, we are excited to be welcoming Dave Foster, Executive Director of the ACCA, to Natures Talk Show to discuss cave conservation. We will learn some fascinating details of cave ecosystems and groundwater issues. There are amazing animals and plants that have evolved in cave conditions. Created on An Ecological Mandate
ACCA is concerned with all caves, regardless of their mode of origin or location. However, most caves are found in the earth's more water-soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, marble and gypsum. The lands in which these types of caves are found are called karst or karstlands.
In karst, there is appreciable groundwater movement through dissolved-out openings in the bedrock; karstlands often have features such as sinkholes, sinking streams, springs, and sometimes caves.
Approximately 20% of the United States is karst. In karst, the surface and the subsurface are intimately connected; cave and groundwater resources cannot be widely used without careful land use of the surface. Simply put, clean caves and karst equal clean water.
World Footprints will walk in the footprints of two socially-conscious guests--a Grammy-nominated singer whose musical talents led her to change her life and live her passion, and we'll welcome back a good friend whose efforts are savings one of the most graceful and beautiful big cats on our planet.

Next we welcome back Dr. Laurie Marker, founder of The Cheetah Conservation Fund. The cheetah is one of the oldest and most majestic animals in the world and is fighting to survive. While it's taken four million years for the species to develop, it has only taken 100 years for mankind to bring the cheetah to the brink of extinction. Dr. Laurie Marker has made it her life's mission to reverse that trend. As the founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Dr. Marker and her team are ensuring that the cheetach is here for the ages.
World Footprints is pleased to share Part 2 of the 3-part interview with Emmy Award winning actor Eric Braeden, who plays Victor Newman on The Young & the Restless (CBS Daytime).

Jay D. Alexander is the president and founder with the non-partisan grassroots non-profit called Civilian Conservation Corps Initiative and their goal is to re-establish the US Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Since his ranger service at Raccoon Creek he has been an advocate for their re-establishment.
Join us with Jay and special guest Fay Cunningham, an alum of the original CCC, as we discuss the revitalization effort of the Civilian Conservation Corps Initiative and what it involves and how you can contact your Representatives to get them to cosponsor “HR188 - The 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps Act” which is sponsored by Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. HR188 is a job creation program that re-establishes a Civilian Conservation Corp that puts to work unemployed and underemployed civilians to advance useful public works projects aimed at safeguarding natural resources and developing new transportation and infrastructure.

Conservation versus Environmentalist is a constant battle as many states look to find ways to deal with an overpopulation of animals, whether they be deer, black bear, wild pigs, racoons or beavers.
While some believe that man has wreaked havoc on the environment and that all animals have a right to live just as much as humans, conservationists believe in balance and controlling and managing wildlife so it is beneficial to both animals and humankind.
Some animals have been hunted to near extinction and due to laws protecting them their numbers have increased dramatically. States are now dealing with over-population of many animals and are grappling with ways to deal with the problems overpopulation has created, whether it be the transmittal of diseases to car accidents to damage to farms and forests.
NJ, one of the most densely populated states, is dealing with this problem and the conflict that arises when one side does not believe hunting is the answer and that humans should alter their behavior and the conservation side that believes human involvement will make a better and safer environment.
Dan Roberts, writer for Ammoland, joins "Common Sense" to discuss conservation versus environmentalism and how hunting, fishing and the role of controlling and maintaining the environment allow men and wildlife to peacefully co-exist.
Jonah Evans, creator of itrack wildlife app, talks about CyberTracker certifications, the role tracking plays with conservation efforts and the job market for trackers.
