Since you like looking at/for endangered species ever considered coming to Canada and looking for/doing a segment on the Timber Rattler? It's not a snake/animal I've seen many talk about.

When I was a kid in the late 80’s I thought this beautiful bird was almost gone. So glad 30 years later these birds still have a chance. Wish this happen for the Ivory Billed woodpeckers in the 1920’s.

I love seeing conservation work like this. How amazing to have brought it back from the brink! I’ve seen European vultures in the wild, they are magnificent to encounter.

I have a project on the California Condor, and I would like to know what it could theoretically kill, if it wasn’t a scavenger.

Being scavengers, you would think they would hang around the city, where there are dumpsters to raid and intrigued humans to feed them...

Thank you for educating me on these beautiful creatures, very intimidating in size but beautiful nonetheless, you are very right it is our responsibility as stewards in fact care takers of this planet to be more mindful of the animals we still have with us.

This is one of my favorite birds. I hope to one day be able to find one in the wild. I’m a big birder, and I’m hoping to be able to find one before I graduate college.
