Room to Roam?: Wildlife in a Pandemic

Room to Roam?: Wildlife in a Pandemic

An interview with Barry Yeoman and David Mizejewski

This National Wildlife Week, we’re celebrating some of the most unique behaviors and unexpected facts about wildlife. The recent pandemic has offered scientists an opportunity to observe how slowdowns in human activity impact animals and ecosystems.

Join Naturalist David Mizejewski and NWF magazine contributor Barry Yeoman to learn how our presence, and our absence, might help or harm wildlife, and what scientists are now discovering.

Recorded April 7, 2021
