A chat about climate education

by | Aug 16, 2021


In this interview We The Species podcast host Calvin Schwartz and I talk about climate education, conservation and storytelling with The Adventures of Captain Polo.

Calvin convinces me to give some of the back story to how I got into conservation, a tale that involves how I dodged the French Infantry and how a 3-month University expedition to the Bolivian Amazon rainforest turned into 20 years of seat-of-the-pants conservation training and practice.

We also explore the character and inspiration behind Captain Polo and his adventurous travels, and how graphic novels and storytelling provide a much-needed bridge between entertainment and education.
