Today’s interview was conducted by one of our newest contributors to the show, Courtney Rae. Courtney brings a unique perspective on wildlife and conservation issues to the show, and I’m super excited to have her on board.
Courtney is deeply embedded in the conservation and environmental community in Portland and beyond through her work as a community organizer with Bark as well as other environmental groups, and she’ll be continuing to explore the intersection between conservation and social justice in future episodes of the show.
For this first episode of 2017, Courtney talked with Esther Forbyn, who is the creator of a unique conservation outreach project called 30 Birds to Know in Portland. Courtney and Esther had a wide ranging conversation focused on the connections between birding, conservation, and social justice.
