Let's Talk Trash

On our show this month, we’re going to take a look into some of the most productive characters that are a part of nature’s cleanup crew. To us, it’s garbage. To them, it’s dinner. There are some busy scavengers who live among us — crafty critters who share our cities and recycle the mountains of food waste our messy society leaves behind. Through the help of thoughtful and passionate scientists who have come to understand and love these creatures, we will uncover in our show today just what makes these scavengers tick. Debunking some myths along the way, we learn what adaptations they have evolved for this “messy” job, what benefits they can provide us, and how us humans can work with them so they can do their job even better.
