Dr. Alex Bond, Senior Conservation Scientist at the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, joins us again to talk about his work at opposite ends of the earth helping protect and raise awareness for at-risk bird populations. From giant mice eating albatross chicks, to mercury poisoning in ivory gulls, we discuss all the depressing ways humans are messing with birds.
