I love sharing science through media other than just peer review publications.   Some are videos I make some myself, some I make through collaboration with other scientists or professionals.

I have a podcast where I interview an animal tracker to tell amazing stories about animals called: Wild Animals.  Each episode is a story about a particular individual animal that a scientist had the fortune of getting to know personally, through animal tracking.

Here are some videos about my research results: Playlists below

Other Productions:

I am a regular expert for two shows on the Science Channel (What On Earth and Strange Evidence) and was also featured on National Geographic’s World’s Weirdest.  I filmed with NHK on a pair of TV shows featuring my research on kinkajous, two shows about olinguitos, and with National Geographic for a show about my research with fishers.

What on earth

Our pet cat tracking research has attracted some attention, including this web video by National Geographic.  My research on coyotes was also featured in the PBS special “Meet the coywolf” (a catchy name but not accurate, I prefer ‘Eastern Coyote’). 

I also filmed two Smithsonian Channel productions in Panama in 2016, one about about our animal tracking on Barro Colorado Island, and one about the decline of jaguars and spread of coyotes. I’ll post a few pictures from the shoot below.
