We’re back!!! Brendan is back for his pilgrimage to the far reaches of India, and he shares a few stories about his adventures.
We catch up with some news: Will our generation be remembered by the chicken bones we leave behind? What is the background of China’s legalisation of the rhino horn trade? Brendan muses over animal societies thriving without males, and Mark investigates the hairy business of the illegal market in tarantulas.
The UPAV (Unusual Pet and Avian Veterinarians) conference, recently held in Adelaide, South Australia, is the main topic of discussion this week. We chat about just a few of the excellent presentations from the conference.
