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.
