Description

New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the country. It’s not an easy place for wildlife to hang on. In spite of the constant threats brought on by development, the garden state remains a haven for a vast array of flora and fauna.

As climate change looms, the survival of many species that call our state home is being called into question. The State of Change podcast will bring together expert voices to explain these threats. Each month a new episode will be released online, free to stream and download at all major sites where podcasts are found.

As the threat of climate change looms over New Jersey, one of the types of wildlife in the most immediate danger are our beach nesting birds. Already pushed into small enclaves by the explosive urban development on the Jersey shore, sea level rise and powerful storms threaten their future.Music in Order of Appearance: "Ruby" by Chad CrouchLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Bountiful" by Podington Bear License: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Celadon" by Podington BearLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Storm Passing" by Podington BearLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Paper Boats" by Podington BearLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Time Passing" by David HilowitzLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/"Turquoise" by Podington BearLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Nature's Way" by The New Mystikal Troubadours License: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/us/

Pollinators are among the most important animals on the planet. A massive portion of the Earth's plants rely on them to be able to reproduce and continue as a species.

With the COVID-19 pandemic causing global shutdowns, how has wildlife reacted to the absence of humans in New Jersey - and across the world? What impacts are we seeing so far, and what should we expect in the long-term? Conserve Wildlife Foundation executive director David Wheeler joins host Matt Wozniak in this special episode exploring the broad array of surprising wildlife sightings being reported across the globe, the response of wildlife to reduced human activity, and the changes that society can make to reduce the chances of future zoonotic diseases gaining a footholdMusic Credits:Podington Bear: SunbeamLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/Podington Bear: CeladonLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/Chad Crouch: RubyLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/Podington Bear: Memory WindLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/Podington Bear: Holding HandsLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/

Our Changing Coast

Our Changing Coast

As our oceans warm, some of the first species to be effected are fish. Through decades of research scientists have measured how assemblages of larval fish have changed in our state's waters. Like many other issues related to climate change, how warming oceans will affect our marine species and fishing industries is extremely complex.Music in Order of Appearance: "Ruby" by Chad CrouchLicense: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Bufflehead" by Chad Crouchhttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/"Paper Boat" by Podington Bearhttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Memory Wind" by Podington Bearhttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Turquoise" by Podington Bearhttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/"Illustrated Novel" by Podington Bearhttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/
Horseshoe crabs are unmistakable: they look almost like dark brown hubcaps and move like army tanks. Their name comes from their shape, which is similar to a horse’s hoof. Horseshoe crabs are prehistoric: they have not changed much in over 400 million years, almost 200 million years before the first dinosaurs. What could this ancient species have to do with the rush to create a vaccine for Covid-19?
