    The Needs of our Wildlife Friends

    with special Guest Greg Mertz,DVM, The Odd Pet Vet

    The nonprofit New England Wildlife Center (the Center) is a grassroots, entrepreneurial venture, launched by a group of Massachusetts’ citizens 33 years ago.  They use the provision of humane medical care to orphaned and hurt wild animals as a real-life and engaging platform to teach the life sciences, with a strong focus on biology to provide hands-on training in veterinary medicine to undergraduate students nationally and internationally.  At New England Wildlife Center – education is action.  The Center hones stewards of wildlife, habitats and natural resources through our facility built to LEED specifications, an onsite nature center and biology classroom, a windowed veterinary hospital where the public can observe first-hand our collective impact on wildlife, and science education curricula proven to increase environmental literacy.

    New England Wildlife Center is an example of our ability as a community to come together to solve real problems on our own, without leaving it the government, large institutions or, in other words, “the experts”.

    The Wildlife Center owns the Odd Pet Vet, and has for 16 years treated the rare animal commercial veterinary practice.

    Greg Mertz, DVM has over twenty-five years experience treating rare wildlife species..

    All the proceeds at the New England Wildlife Center go to help with the care of wildlife and the delivery of education programs. They see approximately 60 species of animals on a regular basis. The more common the animal is, the more commonly we see it. 

    Call into the program, or submit questions on our facebook page and we'll endeavor to answer how you too can support the wildlife in your area.

    Let's talk About It!

    Indycar's Simona de Silvestro, Catholicism history and Panther conservation

    in Travel

    On today’s show World Footprints explores the plight of the endangered Panther, we chat with one of the rising IZOD Indycar stars Simona de Silvestro, and we also view Catholicism through the lens with Father Robert Barron.  As a special bonus, we added some sound bytes and interviews from the DC Stop Modern Slavery walk to end human trafficking.

    Panthers once roamed the entire southeastern United States; from Florida to South Carolina and Louisiana.  However, the panther was added to the Endangered Species List in 1967 and today the remaining population is isolated in South Florida.   The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is at the forefront of the Panther conservation efforts and Park Ranger Sandy Mickey from the Florida Panther & Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuges joins us today to talk about some of these initiatives. 

    Then, we enjoyed a chat with one of the IZOD Indycar series rising stars, Simona de Silvestro.  Simona is one of a handful of female Indycar racers and she is one of the most prominent racecar drivers on the track.   She is the first woman in Atlantic Series history to have earned the most wins and pole positions, and the IZOD Indycar Rising Star Award.  Finally, we will talk to Father Robert Barron, the Francis Cardinal George Professor of Faith and Culture at Mundelein Seminary and a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, about his PBS series Catholicism. This documentary illustrates the history and treasures of a global religion shared by more than one billion people around the world by exploring art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of the Catholic tradition.
