Can you tell us a little about the pandas pressures to mates, and how their faith has played a role in this? Absolutely, the two pandas have been a couple for nearly six years, which is about as long as they've been at the conservation center conservationist have pressured them to mate to help the panda population, but due to the pandas. Pandas Devout Catholic faith the to refuse to partake in any sexual activity outside the holy bonds of marriage. It is twenty twenty. Though. Couldn't they do the deed? If they knew they were going to marry each other? Anyway, you know test the car before you drive it so to speak well many follow that line of thinking. Yes, but according to sources close to the pandas ying and Lee both feared for their souls, and the eternal damnation, they could be bringing. Bringing upon themselves if they acted on their carnal desires, they both believed that sex was meant only for the act of creating life under the holy bond of marriage.

What kind exactly at first the handlers would leave them alone together for extended periods of time when they were both in heat, but according to sources being put in that tempting environment, just allowed their faith to grow stronger. Here's head conservationist Li Chen. Spent years showing them other pandas, mating pumping putative female fair moans into the males living quarters, and even tried central music at one point. We thought they were perhaps developmentally challenged, but we simply did not realize how serious maintaining chastity was to the pandas. To See, such a pious act of restraint in today's Times was remarkable, and did they ever come close to breaking their promises to God? There was some finger and mouse stuff one week, but they clearly felt guilty about it. The whole month afterward, both self flagellated long into the night, and how did park officials finally convinced them to take the plunge in tie the knot well, it had to be a real Catholic ceremony in a church done by a priest, so they needed to be transported crate. They also require the ceremony to be in Latin, but all in all. It was a beautiful service. Here's audio from the very end of the ceremony in nominate Patrice at Philly. Too To On May. The Lord's blessing be upon you I. Now pronounce you. Hand. And Panda Baby. They're really getting after it. Yeah, reports from those in attendance, said the meeting only lasted about fifteen seconds, but they're hoping it will be better when it's time to meet again next year.

But sometimes if you don't have that much to do just get it off your plate take care of it. And then if somebody comes in and says, hey, you can do whatever. 'cause you got your work done. I dunno. It just seems like for a lot of people. We don't really do much work anymore. We're we're not working. We're looking for excuses not to work. So I don't know. I don't dunno any trouble getting here.

And then there was always the black ones, and you could pay a buck and send the black when to someone that you didn't really care for. And we just thought it was fun. It was not that big of you. I'm pretty sure nobody's doing that anymore because that could be a hate crime or bullying, or whatever it would be today. Here's here's the. Here's the thing today. If you if you want to get back into next a British zoo, the Hemsley conservation center, they are allowing people to pay about two bucks. I mean, it's British money. It's about two dollars, and you can name a cockroach after somebody. I think I think that's delightful. So if you just want to take a little exact a little revenge it maybe just BT yourself.

"And didn't take me long to realize that academia, and a in a PHD route was something that that I wanted to do. So I went straight from my master's to my PHD. So we're gonna talk a little bit more about restoration agriculture. Maybe give us a little brief overview of some of the work. You did for your graduate degree in while you're up there, including maybe Senator physiology, and they alligator gar work. Okay. Yeah. So all of my graduate degree was all masters were they were at different places. My masters was at Kentucky state university, which has a really good aquaculture program. Fresh water mainly of course, and in my PHD was at LSU, which also has a good aquaculture program. So it's fish physiology. But it was in the context of aquaculture. So my for my masters, I studied paddle fish, which is a really neat. Ancient fish, the related to sturgeon, and we had a really unique system. There have reservoir ranching, but we needed to try to have an estimate of how much these fish were eating when we were releasing them into these water supply reservoir. So I did some bioenergetics modeling where we looked at energy consumption and. Paddle fish? And I built a big respirator out of a cattle trough, and then at LSU primarily studied Gulf Kelly fish, which we are interested in from a commercial bait fish perspective. But we also as sort of a side project did some work with alligator gar, which is really cool and something that we're kind of continuing to work with collaboratively with LSU even here at US. But we would spawn these fish. We would go catch them from a wildlife refuge, spun them, and then we would look at things like the way they develop their salinity tolerance because there are coastal populations of alligator gar. I'm it's not really a hundred percent known whether or not they have to find fresh water to spawn we know that they're primarily a flood plain spawners. So they come in on a flood tide and spun up in the marshes, and that kind of stuff, and we also did some tagging and releasing of aquaculture alligator gar to sort of try to estimate growth in the wild and population structure, and that kind of stuff that was all happening as I was leaving. So I I can't share any. Results of that work, but it's an ongoing project. Okay. And and you also have been to bring over a pretty cool white alligator gar from what I recall. I did. Yeah. We could thank Craig Watson for that one. So we had we have these baby gar in indoor recirculating systems at LSU and Craig came over for a visit and he was looking at tanks, and he pointed out that there were a handful that were that were white or ended up being loose cystic, which is not fully albino. They have some pigment. But they've got a loss of of a lot of their pigment. And so that was towards the end of my time at LSU, and that was one of the ways that I got introduced to the program at UF was we ended up growing this fish out and bringing it to the tropical aquaculture lab to be held in quarantine and it now resides at the Florida aquarium in downtown Tampa. And it's in their wetlands gallery, and it's a really pretty fish. They're taking great care of it. It's grown a lot. And it's really healthy. Nice looking fish. If you had a chance to get in there and check it out. So let's talk a little bit more about your. Work at UF. Can you tell us what you actually do for a living in what restoration aquaculture is. And and I guess how it kinda relates to maybe things that you learned from commercial aquaculture. Yeah. There's some good ties with commercial aquaculture. So I mentioned coming out of my PHD. I felt like I got really lucky on getting this job. That was in the sense that the job was available coming out of Louisiana with a PHD in aquaculture. I kind of assumed I would end up on a catfish farm in Mississippi or something not that. There's anything wrong with that catfish farms are certainly very important. But, but this is definitely a dream job in terms of diversity of different places that I get to work. So restoration aquaculture is basically aquaculture any it can be plants animals any organism that has grown to restore habitats. And or species can think of stock enhancement with fish or bay scallops and then habitat restoration when we talk about seagrass or corals or wasters. And then it's interesting it really toes the line between. Private agriculture and natural resources on that are part of the common. So some of the species that we work with are protected. They're endangered species listed protected at the state level. And as such we can't commercialize them. So corals, for example, are one that it's illegal to buy and sell Caribbean corals in the United States. So all the cores that are grand for restoration in the US are currently done by universities, or nonprofit organizations, and so it's done with a lot of volunteer labor, and that kind of stuff and and grants from the federal government or private donations on the other hand with bivalve. So for or scallops, primarily scallops, we don't have a state bivalve hatchery in Florida. So all of the scallops that are spawned for restoration come from private commercial hatcheries, and so that's a really important link. And then another one you can think of is when we're talking about sea grasses or even like Everglades restoration all of the name. Native plants that are available out there. That's the way that private industry has really stepped up in a big way. There are now native plant nurseries that can get you specific strains of specific species at specific sizes. You can get quotes from six different private companies for specific suite of plants that you need to restore an area and the same goes with seagrass a lot of that is done on like a consulting kind of basis. So they're almost consulting firms that will do seagrass in submerged aquatic vegetation restoration. Okay. Great. Can you tell us what the center for conservation is where you were. Sure. So the center for conservation is part of a larger collaborative the primary partners at the Tampa electric company. The Florida aquarium, and then the Florida fish and wildlife conservation commission, f w c it is adjacent to the larger collaborative is the Florida conservation and technology center, and that encompasses if any of your listeners are familiar with the manatee viewing center, which is in Apollo beach. It's the most popular free attraction in Florida. We get like four hundred thousand visitors between November and April. But all the manatees are come into the hot water effluent off the power plant and in the wintertime, it's a registered manatee sanctuary. And so we get hundreds of manatees in there when the weather gets cold, and then the center for conservation is twenty acres on the southern part of that property. It's connected by walking trails and kayaking trails and the Florida aquarium was interested in partnering with the university of Florida from the perspective of having a research. Scientist available to them to help guide some of their conservation initiatives using best available science. So I worked with the Florida aquarium staff here on a daily basis in the coral greenhouse, and then also some of the other projects that they have. And then they also support me quite a bit in the field, which is really nice. So finding divers and things like that is always a challenge because of the specific scientific certifications that we have to have an F W C operates a Suncoast youth conservation center out of the site as well, which is a really nice they run summer. Camps. And then during the school year, they have school groups that come in by bus. And so they're sort of goal is to create the next generation that cares. And so they get kids out teach them how to fish teach him how to kayak do some basic water chemistry. They do fish dissections and all that kind of stuff. So there's lots of kids that are not exposed to that kind of thing at all. And so it's a really great opportunity for a lot of the local kids to come here to our site and check out sort of with the natural world has to offer. Well, there's definitely a lot going on. Now, I wanna talk obviously about some of your work with corals. I think we'll do that in the second half. But before we take a break for that. I would like to know if you can maybe give us a real brief introduction to some of the issues with grass based Gallup's in oysters, and in, you know, again, briefly how you're helping with that work. Sure. So I mean, my role is really more as I leave sort of the large scale. Fail boots on the ground restoration to the people that are better equipped to do that. It's a pretty small shop down here. And really what we try to do is work on the science aspects of of some of these restorations so base scallops is an interesting one based Al ups and scalloping are huge cultural phenomena in Florida. So there used to be commercial and recreational scallop fisheries throughout Florida, but it's been really really constricted due to population. Declines and so as far south as Hernando county on the big bend of Florida. And then it goes up a little bit into the panhandle, and I should know better exactly where the recreational fishery stops. But it's a seasonal fishery. There are still hundreds and hundreds of boats that go out it's really popular family pastime, but the state is working and a lot of organizations really too many to list are working on based. I'm primarily working in southwest, Florida. But one of the things I'm working on developing some genetic tools that would allow us to do parentage analysis where we can take scallops that are spawned and hatchery and conclude. Lucidly verify that when we find them later that their the product of restoration in those same tools could be used at a statewide level to look at population connected and how they move around. But the basic premise is just that we spun scallops in the hatchery, and then raise the larvae to a certain stage, sometimes they're even raised up to juvenile style. And then returned back to seagrass beds are really obligate for seagrass. And then the seagrass work that we're doing is really just getting off the ground. But what we're hoping to do with that is propeller scar restoration so propeller scarring is a big issue. You can imagine the scallops have to be in seagrass and everybody wants the scallops. So you get a lot of boat traffic and really shallow seagrass areas. And when a boat goes through too shallow seagrass area the propeller can cut a big scar. In that seagrass, and there are methods out there that are available to actively restore that scar. So you can bring it back up to grade you can plant it and that kind of stuff. So that's something that we're. Working on hopefully, doing some of that in the big bend area where all the scalloping takes place in. Maybe a quick went on the oyster stew. Okay. So the waster restoration is a huge huge thing around Tampa Bay, especially but all throughout the state. I mean, I'm right here on base on most familiar with it here. But what we do for oyster restoration is use basically coach in Florida. We have a lot of mind shell that. We're able to use. You can also use recycled shell from restaurants or seafood processors that shell when it's recycled has to sit for six months, basically in quarantine to avoid any sort of diseases or parasites getting back into the system. But in talking to f WC about this in Florida where mostly substrate limited rather than recruitment limited. So if we put out bags of oyster shell most places on the Gulf Coast of Florida at the right time of year that shell will be naturally colonized by waster larvae that are just swimming around in the.

"Finding divers and things like that is always a challenge because of the specific scientific certifications that we have to have an F W WC operates a Suncoast youth conservation center out of the site as well, which is a really nice they run summer camps. And then during the school year, they have school groups that come in by bus. And so they're sort of goal is to create the next generation that cares. And so they get kids out teach them how to fish teach them how to kayak do some basic water chemistry. They do fish dissections and all that kind of stuff. So there's lots of kids that are not exposed to that kind of thing at all. And so it's a really great opportunity for a lot of the local kids to come here to our site and check out sort of with the natural world has to offer. Well, there's definitely a lot going on.

But in talking to w WC about this in Florida where mostly substrate limited rather than recruitment limited. So if we. We put out bags of oyster shell most places on the Gulf Coast of Florida at the right time of year that shell will be naturally colonized by waster larvae that are just swimming around in the water column looking for somewhere to land. So I have a specific project in partnership with Nando county that's funded by the Florida Department of environmental protection and Noah where we're going to do a fairly small scale waster reef right off of Hernandez beach. But that will be the first restoration of its kind in Hernando county. So we're really looking to expand the geographic footprint of restoration in order to create as connected habitats that we're looking for. Well, thanks for that refund on those other areas that you're working with.

"For procedures in place for our staff, and they do all the work behind the scenes with the snakes for breeding and collecting venom and things like that. But it's a really great program for for the entire community probably doesn't even realize is happening. I'm sure they Don, but. What a great jewel you have. Right. There in San Antonio really helping to save lives yes that's wonderful absolutely wonderful, well now we're going to move beyond my fascination for. Cockatiels and snakes and talk about, your golden girls I love your elephants Tim. Tell us about about your elephants sure washing today is the one. Year anniversary that Nicole who came from feld entertainment, which is ruining brothers came to the San Antonio zoo so actually one year ago today she. Came to be a companion for lucky so lucky has been here for since nineteen. Sixty two Asian elephants she's outlived their lifespan already by about ten years which is really a. Testament to the care that she's gotten here at the San Antonio's. View and so we had been searching for a companion for the last, couple of years she's a very particular elephants so she hasn't. Always gotten along with everyone she's roommate did with so, we were very diligent and finding the right companions for her so we met with Ringling over the course of a. Year or two and they came out to visit lucky and said right away we know Zach Who would do well with her. And then the San, Antonio myself and some other staff went down to their facility visit their elephants and their conservation. Center, and we. Bought. In. The, coal around a year ago and then a couple of months later we brought Nicole's best friend Karen. Who when we visited, the. Center for elephant conservation in Florida. Which. Is run by feld Karen Nicola inseparable and what we we didn't want to, split those two up but we also didn't want to. Bring them both at the same, time and have lucky be the odd one. Out so we brought them one at a time and it's really. Worked out well they're the best of friends we, could ever imagined exceeded all of our expectations and wishes and and hopes and they are thriving. Together and hanging out together and swimming together and I'm doing all the things that. We'd want to see a group of elephants doing together and our community has really been inspired. By those three ladies we affectionately call the golden girls I love. It I love it well there's a YouTube video that I think Tim, went viral of those girls talking disguised that great video of. The golden girls Yeah we had a, we have a guest that. Literally comes to visit every day and gets us amazing photos and amazing videos and she, was just at the the habitat one morning watching the girls and they were all, kind of in different parts of the. Yards doing their own thing lucky was searching for food. On you know we hide in Richmond, food and snacks in the, walls, and things for them so lucky was kinda just scavenging along, the wall and became real, apparent, that, Nicole, wanted to play, in the coal started kind of swinging her. Foot and tail towards lucky and trumpeting a little bit and then he turned around the, coal ran an unlucky ran. After Nicole and they're dumping and trumpeting and making all the noises you wanna, hear from elephants and the next thing you know you see carrying running running into the, video picture and, then all three of them are just really set there together and. Play together and talk to each other for minutes four or five minutes probably we posted not, the whole video but they're really vocal together which is really. Nice to hear and of course. You can hear. It across zoo. And, across the park that we sit in which is a great sound I love that sound and for those of you that Haven't had a chance to hear elephants trumpet I tell you it's amazing and. Anyone even within driving distance at, the San, Antonio zoo do make it on your summer or fall they k- list it's. A worthwhile trip to see the golden girls and this incredible and I was just reading to him and this is I think significant eye opening number the San Antonio zoo had an eighty five million. Dollar impact on the San Antonio community, in two thousand sixteen so when, I think about zoos I think of the educational piece incredible conservation work that you do the you know just the, ability to helps keep species alive was face the, sixth mass extinction which will want to get into after a commercial break there I'm so impressed that your zoo had eighty-five, million dollar economic impact. In these San Antonio community that stunning, in it's a great message, for us in the community to. Garner more support for the things we wanna do in the future you know we're we're in, the midst of master plan. Right now to really. Develop the rest of our zoo Property and we want to become the biggest the greatest zoo in the country. And so we're working towards that and we hosted we had a record year. In attendance last, year of, over one point two million people and eighty five million dollar, impact to the community we helped fill eighty. Nine thousand hotel rooms Snake that year it's more afraid and supported of you than you six are of hundred it ninety six jobs so not. Only the five hundred fifty employees that we have here at the, zoo but other jobs have contractors and vendors that we use in the community so it really has a far reaching impact this do. Both locally and globally as we, do conservation work around the world, we're also doing conservation work locally and, helping the, local economy which is it's a win for everybody it's a win win win and being that that you've been certified as a humane conservation. Institution is also a big win for the animals how many animals are in your collection ten we have a large collection in the thousands a lot in the typical fashion we have thousands of fish we have you know thousand bats. And then, we, are probably one of the largest bird collections in the country I would say one or two Number one or two with bird. Question and do some amazing work in that arena. As well our question is big and then we're looking really to grow, and we have some species that we would like to do conservation. Work with and have at the San Antonio z. that our guests can come see in connect. With that we don't have yet so a lot of that's happening in the national, planning right now to really look at all the animals in our care. Why do we have them in our care. What conservation work are we doing with which each of those and let's make, sure we have a plan for each species that we have, here to help that species that's great. And friends if, you're, not. Familiar with zoos and aquariums in this country more people visit zoos and aquariums than all professional sports combined that. Includes hockey baseball football at all of? Those. Up together basketball and more people visit zoos and aquariums. It's stunning and I, think that's great because we're. Talking about, some major, crises facing. Animals in our lives that we see in wildlife conservation we're going to be. Right back after a very brief Commercial break to visit with Timour oh one.

You have mortar state does but in most of Africa adults owned at least ninety nine. Percent of the dogs are owned. And if you want. To vaccinate get a chance that drizzle Is the has been a misconception that wildlife plays an important role in the spread of rabies inaccurate got all the studies that you've done. And some have been done even in Tanzania get to national buck, show that if you vaccinate domestic goes against. Rabies even wild animals like the mystic lake water dogs they will not. Get rid is because there is a baby's weight us is, accurate domestic dog and so when you think of it that rabies is unimportant public health program we need not get too worried about Estee does. Not get worried about rabies in what it becomes possible to make sure that the human, deaths due to debut wow this is a. Serious issue because a lot of people naturally think about wildlife and I think that that may. Have that perception may have, started not started but it may be pervasive in the United States. People think about rabies as a disease that occurs in wolves Coyotes or raccoons and skunks they don't necessarily think about it in terms of the. Wall being the domestic dog and you're saying in Africa these dogs, are our own, and so if you can vaccinate domestic dogs you could potentially create a wall against the spread of rabies you're correct yeah, I guess my question is then how much of the population needs. To be back stated and. How deadly Israelis because most people say we know that rabies is deadly and, we know that it's highly infectious but. How much of the population actually needs to be vaccinated in order to prevent this nothing question so the will we determine, what, proportion of the book palatial needs to be vaccinated against any deceased for the, disease to be stalked is using something productive issue so if imagine that if, you have an infectious dope coming to a population. How many other dogs will be infected by that dog and You have calculated that across many cities where you have hide dense dense numbers of dogs and who had been skies and the figure is about every infectious Doug introduced. Into a naive collision would enter about one point four dogs now you can, use that number to determine what proportion is a to vaccinates The disease condition and look, to find for ABC is actually seventy percent, when you talk to, this one of that seventy percent. But very high tunnel but a dogs within the population. On average adult will live about two point five years which. Is surprising.
