Solving the mental load update
"When we first spoke about the mental load on this podcast, there was a fringe cartoon cold. You should've asked that was going viral. It explained the mental load with such clarity that when I first saw it, my reaction was fury. I wanted to. Shift to the ground. It showed a woman with a baby and a hapless male partner who was kind, but needed to be told how to help and it so familiar. So common. So exasperating and so profoundly unfair. Journalist, Tracey spicer new. What I was talking about. It was an absolute lightbulb moment for me, I sir, Clementine, Ford's facebook page. I share with everyone and I knew that went viral swear words and it happened in the time when I realized that my life with my wonderful husband who's fifty fifty with the housework fifty, fifty with the childcare, but it was just the little things. I'm always the one who organizes school holiday care or who takes the time to look after the kids or rangers everyone's Christmas presents or birthday present in his extended family and my extended family. So after reading that I, decided to go on strike in the household so he had to do it drove him Berserk. He said this is crazy. Such little school holiday cared Australia. I said now you know my pain. Jenny talk about the mental load in your life. I think when I saw the catching was like, oh, no added that to my mental learn. About. How often I think about the mental load? That's Jenny Leong amp in New South Wales Parliament I was very lucky and I consider it to be like that. My partner was able to access paid parental leave. So he was the primary care for a significant amount of time and in that case he did take the mental Lloyd and a lot of that was then there that the what's interesting is once we're both Both. Back at work where the default position falls back and the expectation of WHO's supposed to know those things to me. Then you feel like part of it is also all of my being bad feminist because of that because I think then adds another level to it to how much you should make a deal of this or not I noticed the gender dynamic with my. Friends that are in. Relationships, they're both men they quite comfortably into stereotypes, gender roles that old without all of the challenges and the. Doctor Leah. Repent on a lecturer in sociology at the University of, Melbourne. She racist as domestic labor, and this idea of the mental load is her field of expertise. I'm going to start and say a little bit controversial. Say That everyone actually carries the mental load. So some portion of your mental load may go to thinking about your career. Some portion of it may go to thinking about your family and some portion of it may be going to thinking about your personal life and the differences, the balance across men and women. So you could imagine men are spending a lot more of their mental load thinking about how do I advance my career thinking about the day to day challenges of work. That is a very different mental load than who is going to pick up the child from daycare. or WHO's GonNa Organize School holidays or who's doing the housework wise. House a mass. And one leads to economic outcome, career mobility and one is just unpaid sometimes recognized sometimes not recognized labor. And I think that's really the difference. How do we shift the ratio? Definitely does seat more with women the. Yeah, I, K-. So we're all in agreement about that. Absolutely. Absolutely, the balance in terms of unpaid in terms of thinking about the experience is disproportionately shouldered by women. Yes. Absolutely. Once, you get your head around the idea of the mental load. You start seeing it everywhere in the lives of your friends, colleagues, your mother, your self. It. Happens to women in all walks of life and age and six urology, but it seems to hit hardest when there's a baby. So. Now, we have a name for the mental load. But. The problem is naming, it doesn't make it go away. As I was sobbing thinking. I used to be able to manage employees teams. And now I'm too overwhelmed to even manage a grocery list. And more importantly. How did I become the default for every single child care and household tasks for my family? It wasn't supposed to happen to me. This is a road ski shades La, and she's written a book called Fairplay, which is all about fairly distributing the mental load aves marriage nearly ended when her husband center, it takes saying. I'm surprised you didn't get blueberries. She was furious at the assumption that she had gone from high powered lawyer to full-time Default Blueberry shepper. Eight. Knew she had to do something about it? She says, there are a few ways to look the mental load. My favorite was a term from nineteen eighty-seven and American sociologist named Arlene Kaplan. Daniels. coined a term called invisible work. In why like that term so much is because that's the only one that had a modicum of a solution in it. Because I kept thinking to myself. Maybe. Maybe if I can make. Visible all the invisible things I was doing from my home and family for my husband, Seth? Maybe then he would value what I did.

High desert flower farming in Arizona with Aishah Lurry of Patagonia Flower Farm
"Was thinking about you all week thinking, how is she farming when it's over a one hundred degrees so give us sort of a snapshot of your farm and like how do you cope with those conditions? Well, let me tell you first of all, we're in what's called the high desert where about four thousand feet above sea level. So we're in the mountain. Okay. So near probably always consistently ten degrees cooler than Tucson in almost fifteen degrees cooler than Phoenix. So settle a little secret about where you are is because of allegation exactly now it's hot outside it's a little hot, but you know it works in it's funny because one of the benefits about living here it does snow. We get snow in the winter, but it's usually gone by noon our ground never freezes. So the soil is always workable all and very rarely have like a hard frost. So if you think of like I, go up in Boston, it would start to get colder and colder nine pm pm and that's when the coldest would happen. But here the coldest time it seems like is early in the morning three or five. In the sun rises in warm things up in usually. So is just a click fraud so that can damage some plants but for the most part, we have no problem. So I don't know and I I just I guess, I have the desire to grow flowers GonNa make it happen or the variances is what's crazy is that it can be like ninety five degrees during the day and then in the thirties at night. It's crazy I mean I was thinking when you talked about snowing in the morning at least you're getting precipitation where other parts of Arizona are not getting precipitation. So even though it snow, it becomes the moisture the roots need that's in. It's wonderful when the snow slowly melts in and gets into the soil, you really can't beat that. while. So give us snapshot of Patagonia Flower Farm, and of course I pick a Patagonia as the clothing, but it's actually the name of a town and I believe a mountain somewhere, right? Yes. In it's actually pronounced Pentagon Yep. Okay Not like the brand to girl. No. So it's very hilly. We got a lot of grasslands here Yes. So it's really really beautiful. A lot of people think of Arizona and they think of Oh. It's everything's GonNa be dry. We've got quite a bit of green going on Yeah. It's really a beautiful town the Pentagon, yet self only has about a thousand people that that live here Old Mining town in it's quite a lot of retire. You can imagine a lot of artists, letter retirees, a lot of women. So it's an interesting sweets out. Wow. That's I wanNA visit. That sounds really wonderful. Yeah and is there much agriculture they're like. Are. You a lone ranger to use the Weser your lot. Of course. Now, a lot of people are gardening. You know it's funny because there is A. Organization here in town that I work very very closely with called Borderland Restoration. So they have a big greenhouse here where they sell native plants in the harvest seeds germinate the season, create more plans to restore the over you know. Overworked will say off. Areas of. Of. Southern Arizona. So so yeah. So. There are few. Let me think. So, before I moved here like years before there was a A Dalia grower here believe it or not, and I know that they must have had a lot of shade because we need the shape of the Dahlia's but But yeah. So a little bit here and there but I think borderlands nursery is the biggest like grower right now and it is mostly native Oh. That's so interesting. So your what's the size and scale of of your farm and give us a snapshot of what all the pieces to the puzzle there. Okay. So. I am what is called a micro farm about or thousand square feet, and I'm growing things very tightly together and I. You know I took 'em a Florette alumni I took her class in twenty seventeen. So I follow a lot of her protocols and the only differences I do a no till I keep the landscape fabric down and Yes. So so that's if I do the landscape fabric I've got who those short tunnels I don't have a greenhouse yet, but one day. And yes, I have an area where I'm doing mostly perennials and then I have my annual and at borderlands has been so gracious of allowing me to use a quite about fifteen hundred square feet where I've been growing sunflowers in in the ground or undercover know in the ground vendor landscape fabric on their property warring. Yeah. But I love it that like you've been entrepreneurial enough to figure out how to. Access land that wasn't being utilized, but you knew would be perfect for some flowers. Eight. Wow.

SF Giants Off to Successful Season Start
"It's a new world of Giants baseball. And frankly, it's been a very good week for the Giants and a continued last night as the Giants beat the Texas Rangers 7 to 3. It was a close game for a while. Look like it was going to be 4 to 2 of 5 to 2. And then the things happen a little bit later. And the Giants ended up winning the game 7 to 3 over the Texas Rangers for the Giants. After that, 1st 2 games down in L. A Things are much better for them. 43 runs scored for the Giants. They've given up 50 so they have a run differential of minus seven.

But for the Giants last night against Texas was men and boys, really the Texas pitching staff 11 walks And a hit batter for the Texas pitching staff. Last night, Jordan Lyles was all over the place and helped the Giants tremendously with all the walks that he gave up, and for the Giants, they took advantage of it, and it was really nice to see A ball club that is doing something offensively and To those of us who've watched Giants baseball for so long. You know, that offense has always been somewhat of a question for the Giants over these last 10 or 11 years of tremendous results with great pitching. But the offense has always been a question. Now. All of a sudden the offense is leading the way and the pitching is doing fine. You know, Drew Smyly last night. We'll talk about the game. But you, smiley I ended up going four innings than leaving the game with the discomfort of the index finger. So that means a trip to a Dr Scott Hampson. I'm sure and two of the hand therapists, Nancy And I know them both very well. And he's going for an M R I on that index finger, so ligament issue or something like that. But Smiley did go four innings last night for the Giants and continue that streak of no starting pitcher going five innings. For the Giants, and that's the longest streak in the history of Major league baseball. So today they look to Jeffs a margin to try to break that. See if he can give him five good innings today. But continuing with last night, 52 at our be eyes. For the Giants to out and they got the hit to drive in a run three for 10 with runners in scoring position,

You all been up in the air, and I saw a story that you were. You had been talking to Ah Salt Lake police and working with them and talking to them about some things that might be done. To improve policing in our city. What's going on with that? There's a lot going on with that. Right now. We have to put together the commission on racial Equity in policing, which is community members, background experiences across the spectrum. It all wanting to see a reform in Salt Lake City Police Department and generally profit nation. But we've tasked them with looking at Salt Lake City Police Department budget culture and policies and then bringing recommendations over the next months and even up to a year. Back to the City Council on myself to make improvements in Salt Lake City government when it comes to policing, But right now and simultaneously we've been working on some police policy reforms. That includes use of force. We're looking at Camden, New Jersey, on the FBI and mother really progressive policies nationwide around use of force. No knock warrants. Another one. We are numbers are already quite low compared to other departments. And they have decreased in the last few years. But we still want to look at the policy to see how we can improve it to further tighten down on instances where no knock warrants or used our body camera policy is pretty extensive. But we want to improve transparency around. How and rather why officers disabled and increase potentially the consequences for officers who disable their body camera. There's consent to search On. We want to increase our transparency and make that more clear. There's some forms that we give. People were supposed to give people. When a police officer is going to search, we need to make sure those are readable. But they're translated if necessary, that their clear to the public There's several others, but I'll posit there and see what your doctor I wanted to ask about is their eyes there anyway, to deal with the fact that the police are often called upon to do things that they really Shouldn't be doing to deal with mental health issues, for instance.

And I think our officers were also appreciate not being being called on to do the kind of work that isn't necessarily policing work, so We're looking at how we might be able to use our eight social workers that Aaron, the solid city Police Department, which is something unique to our police department, compared to others Round ST How can they go out with that? Because they go into corresponded model with an officer. How can they go out in a way that it doesn't trigger individuals who are in mental health crisis? Helping. What's the appearance of

That was like significant for them. What would that be? The first one I shot like no other one shot, but. went to maybe as a kid well, that's a great question I would have to say a grew up. A mets fan I. also a Rangers Fan growing up. I remember distinctly go into a myths game with my dad. I probably was maybe seven or eight. And, we were sitting behind home plate at Shea Stadium frankly sort halfway up, maybe third deck or something in. A foul ball team our way straight back. Identity shoved me out of the way in cod with one round. Tremendous amount it's been going. You know I'll never forget that I'm glad you remind me of that. That was fifty something years ago. An amazing that's A. Great Memory have first game. Yeah, well, it's better than getting in the head with a puck. But it would. No it was, it was a great memory. I had that ball forever I. Don't know what happened to it. In various moves over the years on the hockey side remember going to see the Rangers play in back. In the day we used to Go the old Madison Square Garden.

Would I say I am prepared to die to defend our? Who strong words have there been any attempts by activists to deface or destroy the statue? There have not and while some would argue. That's because the statue was not in any real danger. Marquis believes it's actually because his crews doing such a good job protecting it I see why of the protesters decided to take a stand now well in light of recent efforts by activists to remove memorials dedicated to Stonewall Jackson Robert e Lee and other southern civil war leaders. This group which has dubbed itself the Jelly Stone militia fears. It's only a matter of time before public opinion turns on its favourite anthropomorphic animal. Here's Marquis again. People are so quick to. To say Yogi. Bear me of harbored pro confederacy beliefs, and therefore should be cancelled, but that completely ignores his rich history, a stealing picking masters his work with Ranger Smith and all the mentoring to providing young bears like boo, boo, we don't know whether he would have stood with the union or fought for southern secession.

"Him. Hanging above the entrance of the school is black figure hanging in effigy. And banks and the other Rangers refused to take down because they said they didn't put it up. You're right. It is a very striking photo and. Given! What's going on today? It it really has. Some residents and we're going back again to nineteen fifty seven as long way back, but it's. It's still echoes today. How did Sergeant banks treat others on the scene in advance like like journalists for example I mean this was. This was a noteworthy event. If a reports came around and start asking uncomfortable questions, banks removed them. Sometimes as he said with the aid of a Rangers boot, or he would threaten them with the rest, or you would tell them. He was going to take their cameras and expose their film. He was not friendly to. to journalists who were working at one point, a priest showed up and try to talk to the crowd about loving one's neighbor and banks escorted him from the scene. He didn't have to kick him, but he did escort in from the scene. I mean backs wasn't putting up with a nonsense. At these places he became. Good friends with The White Citizens Council which is. Pro Segregationist Group. Call across the south, but they had a branch and Texarkana. When it was all done the the White Citizens Council was so happy with ranger banks. They gave him a chicken dinner. know it's not so remarkable for local law enforcement to support segregationists in the south in the nineteen fifties. It is kind of remarkable. How sergeant banks actions as arranger were remembered and described in later media accounts. Tell us about that. was presented as a hero and. Was for these actions. Yes, it was. Again and again he was described in media reports as the man who. Kept the mobs under control, and and her kept the scene pacified and. helped. BRING PEACE TO A. Volatile situation well, the way he did that was as I, said Threatened to arrest. Any black students showed up and. Tried to enroll. There's an interesting postscript to this. That is very very recent. This involves statue of Sergeant banks which has stood for many years in love field, which is one of two airports in Dallas. What's tell us about this? Statue was Sculpted in the late nineteen fifties nineteen fifty-nine somewhere in there. A local businessman, a man who ran a chain of Cafeterias WanNa to have a statue, commemorating the Rangers, and as I said it's. J banks was a very handsome guy. He looked like ranger, and so the the sculptor used him as the model. It's stands about twelve feet high on its base. Lovely brass statue, and for many many many years it has. Has has stood in the lobby of love field, and for passengers, disembarking and coming down the steps into the into the main lobby. That's what the first thing they see is. Is this big statue of J banks? Now that the book is out, the city of Dallas has decided that this statue was going to be removed and I think they are removing as we speak. And what what happens to it? I don't know where it goes I. Don't know, but. The discussion has started. Doug Swanson is a veteran, investigative reporter and editor. His new book is cu-ltive. Glory, the bold and brutal history of the Texas Rangers. He'll be back to talk more about the Rangers. After a short break I'm Dave. Davies. This is fresh air.

Enforcement Agency widely celebrated in TV and film, which discovers has a little known history of abusive conduct and racial and ethnic oppression. History of the Texas Rangers is called Glory. The Rangers had quite a history with Texas in WCTC didn't? Do factor to back in nineteen. Nineteen, which is known as the red summer across the country for all the. LYNCHINGS and racial incidents. And there was one in Longview Texas in East Texas. Nearly collapsed in a race war. So. The Rangers decided they had to do something about that. They were they were very concerned about. Racial outbreaks in Texas. But what they decided to do was forced the ACP at a Texas so again on the governor's orders they began meeting with. Police chiefs and sheriffs across the State Trying to figure out ways to infiltrate NAACP meetings, to. Stop Black oriented newspapers from coming in to Texas. They would talk to the post masters if you see entities papers like the Chicago defender and others tear them up. Don't deliver them. They talk to gun stores and told him don't sell any guns. Legally! To black people. Hand then they tried to break up the meetings where. They warned black people were trying to. figure out ways to get their rights. That was a bad thing back in one, thousand, nine, thousand, nine, hundred Texas as far as the Rangers were concerned. What was the impact on the EP? Well eventually. They were forced out of the state. This happened after the. Desegregation efforts of the nineteen fifties. The state itself the. Attorney, general and other powerful members of the state. TOOK THE NAACP to court and had them. For a while thrown out of Texas. They were seen as an illegal operation and the state of Texas. The ranger again were part of that, but just a small part. This goes back to the general theme which is. Yes there were heroic rangers. Yes, they'd done many. Good things, but they have acted throughout their history has the force of the White Tower structure and the state that's that's been their role and large part. I want to talk about the Rangers. Role in a farmworker strike in the Rio, Grande Valley in the nineteen sixties, but before we get to that, tell me just a little bit about the rangers his way of dealing with. Labor disputes. Well the Rangers have been as I, said the agents of the government, so if the government thought a strike needed to be broken, they often sin in the Rangers They broke up railroad strikes. They broke up Longshoremen strikes even broke up a cowboy strike up in panhandle. Longtime ago, so they had a long history as strikebreakers even before they got the farmworkers. Down South Texas in nineteen, sixty seven. I want to talk about this armor strike in the Rio Grande Valley. A key figure for the Rangers was a captain named a Y. Alley. He and before we talk about what happened in the strike. Just give us a thumbnail description of him and his style. Captain Allie was a beloved captain by his men. He would always go.

"All right Rangers here comes the sound clip listen. Okay, here's a little hint. We've learned a lot about this creature in past episode. In fact, we even spoke to this animals zookeeper from the Toronto Zoo. Any ideas. Here's that sound more time? Ready to guess. Did you. Rhinoceros. If you did your. Who would have thought rhinos with sound like that? That sounded more like good tiny bird as opposed to Jane Norms Rhinoceros to me. There are actually five different types of Rhino on earth, two species from Africa, the Black Rhino in the white. Rhino and three from Asia Sumatran, Javan and greater one horned. Finals are such important animals. They're one of the largest land mammals alive today. Unfortunately, there are fewer than thirty thousand of them alive in the wild. Rhinos have been hunted. For Their Horn as some cultures believe the horns have medicinal properties. They absolutely do not in fact. Do you know what Rhino Horns are made of? Carrington. That's the same stuff. Your hair and fingernails are made of and last time I checked. There wasn't nothing medicinal about hair or fingernails. Rhinos need our protection. They're big. They're beautiful and we WANNA make sure that they're here for a long long time.

"Oh we're thing I wanted to ask you since I have you on the line now. Is it true that versus sleep standing up because that does not sound very comfortable so there's two kinds of sleep and Horses do One version standing up and one version lying down so they have really really special ligaments to cross their knees that lock into place to let them do really really deep napping. But it's not the kind of sleep where they can dream. Dot kind of sleep is called. Rem Sleep and they need about four hours a day of that but it doesn't need to be altogether and for REM sleep lie down but because they can get really really good rest on their feet there.

"Holda before we can answer that question. I think we've hit the brakes for a second and talk about domestication. Let's look at dogs? For example very long time ago they were much like wolves ancient cultures domesticated dog so they became much more friendly. When you compare them to their wolf ancestors you sure wouldn't want a pet wolf. But how did this domestication happen? Well people from these ancient cultures took the friendliest wolves and read them with each other. It took many many generations but by always selecting the friendliest in each litter to continue breeding over time. These animals changed so much so that they were no longer wolf. A very simple. I think happened with horses. Thousands of years ago people took wild horses and by selectively Breeding Them. They created the various horse breeds. We know today. Nowadays we have over two hundred different dog breeds but we also have wolves in the wild. So do you think that there are still wild horses that were never ever domesticated by humans? Take a guess the answer now but there's a type of course that everyone thought was wild. It's called the Press Wall Skis Horse. It's originally from Mongolia and many people called it. The only truly wild horse alive today. There are of course extinct wild horses but after a team of researchers looked at its DNA a little more closely in twenty eighteen. It seemed as though the Press Wolski Horse is descended from horses which were domesticated fifty five hundred years ago by the bow tied people in Kazakhstan. So even though it's ancestors were domesticated a long time ago. This horse is still technically feral. Not Wild horses rare really rare in fact the wall. Cds Horse was actually extended the wild but thanks to successful breeding programs at Zoos and conservation efforts this small stocky horse has been reintroduced into its native habitat. Now who's ready for some excellent wacky facts about Horses Samantha? Start the countdown top. Ten amazing facts about horses number. Ten horses are found on every continent except Antarctica number. Nine horses are measured in hands. A hand equals four inches. Number eight horses are herbivores. They mostly eat grass but domesticated horses also enjoy oats barley and hay number. Seven horses are cold full number. Six baby horses are much more independent than maybe people bulls can run just hours after birth number five. There are more than three hundred fifty. Four threes number. Four courses are social animals. Feral horses live in herds of three. To Twenty members number. Three horses can live for over thirty years number. Two the speed at which horse walks is called the gate they can walk. Trot. Canter and Gallop. Gallup is the fastest and number. One opponent isn't a baby horse. It's an adult horse that shorter than one hundred and forty centimeters. Now if you're like me and can't get enough of forces you'll love to hear him in a place. In Toronto called the Community Association for riders with Disabilities or Card Insurance people go there to practice riding. Which means having people ride horses for therapeutic reasons like helping with balance coordination and strength the horses and the Stack in card help young clients from the age of four and even people on their sixties to cope with challenges. They may experience because of their disability for a bit more about therapeutic riding. Let's talk to Sean Walden and see what we can learn about these helpful horses. Hello Speaking Hi Shawna. This is Earth Ranger Anna from the Earth Rangers. Podcast how you doing today. I'm great. Thanks for calling how are you? I'm good. I'm doing an episode all about horses today and I was wondering if I could ask you questions absolutely. I always like to talk about horses awesome. Are you writing a horse rate now? No I'm not Irish but it would be a little dangerous to answer the phone while riding but I'm getting ready to right after our call. Oh no that makes sense just would have been cool. Though it would have been cool. I could put the phone to their face. Nicholas at hot anyways. I have to say that besides being an international wildlife investigator podcasters. It's always been my dream to work with horses. Now you get to work with horses and people that Super Amazing and you tell me how you got to do this job lake. Have you always had a soft spot for horses in your heart? I have actually always always loved horses since the time I was really young but because I lived in the city I only got to see them during the summer at summer camp and so I was about fourteen when my best friend came across this barn called Card which is a barn. That's in the city and we came to check it out and we found out that card Volunteer based sable and when I got to see people my age as clients younger than me or than me and they find things really hard that I did very easily and then I could see how the Horse Health Damn to master those skills. It was a huge eye-opening moment for me and I just never stopped working at guard on. It's so cool. So do you get to ride a lot yourself? I write several times a week. my job is in just two right. Usually I will ride more often. Winter Training a horse to begin working the program But other than that. I pitched in to help. The horses stay exercised and fit for their jobs. Oh I wanted to ask you about that. I'm really curious how horses are trained to be therapy animals. How does it work? How does it work? So there's this whole thing that happens before they ever get to facility. And then they do. An intensive thirty to sixty day training period where they're getting training in some manner every single day in the aspects of their role. Gotcha so it's like Horse boot camp. It is very much like horse bootcamp. How many horses live at your location? Do you have a favorite? We have thirteen amazing horses that I have to favorites. I have Skoca a big handsome Canadian that we have and splash who is a smaller painters. That we have. Oh cute. Now. Can you explain to our listeners? How Horseback Riding Helps People? How horses help people well. How do they not help? People is probably shorter. Answer but how or help people most people think of riding the horse when they think of it therapeutic riding even though there's lots to it from the ground and when a person sits on a horse the way that the moves that person particularly there have sent their spine is the same way that person would move if they were on the ground locking so it is the only known replica of the Human Walking Gait and that means for our writers who haven't yet learned how to walk or who do walk but have some difficulty with it because of their disability the movement input from the Horse is going to train or retrain their body and how to move how it is so cool. There's like a natural similarity between the movements. Only known replica. The Human Walking Gait. You can sit on donkey or camel or anything else and it won't move either way too. He would move us. Horse Pelvis moved exactly like ours so we have three planes of movement three directions. Our body moves in when it's blocking and the horse does the same thing so we can sit on the horse and be moved it cool now. What's a wonderful story? You can tell us about a horse helping prison to feel better You know there's a lot of stories and I like to say that Our horses have helped people to say their first words take their first steps but a couple of stories that come to mind One of my writers who was in junior high school at the time was getting ready to do a class project in the class project that you had to stand up and present in front of everybody which was a really really scary thing for her because she had a lot of difficulty speaking and when she got anxious it got worse so she wasn't sure how she was going to be able to do this and it was stressing her out a lot and causing a lot of problems and then Her teacher actually suggested that since she goes riding every week and she shared how important it was to her. Maybe she should project on horses and that really really inspired this young person and she was able to Not only give her presentation but talk. Vdi really well through it and to stay motivated and not get upset when she had a problem with her speech during the presentation. So that's one of my favorite stories for sure Another one is a young woman who is currently writing with us right now and she has multiple health issues which put her in the hospital frequently and she has always loved horses but being able to come to card and ride has very very special for her but while she loves riding horses. Muskoka as one of her favorites that her mom has told me that for several days after she rides Muskoka. She will have a significant change in her mood. She's bouncier happier more motivated and anything that she has to do with respect to her. We're dealing with her. Health is handled in a much more Confident manner because those things take a huge hit with all of the stuff she has to deal with but after riding Muskoka she can handle various health challenges with more optimism and willingness. So we try and make sure she rides before she has any hostile points. That's amazing and I know every time I get to ride. I have a huge smile on my face so I know exactly what you mean exactly exactly and splashes also helped a young a young boy. He's writing with us right now to sit up on his own. He came to us not being able to do that. He always needed to lean against the back of a chair or be held up and because of her little legally Gigli movement and her broad back he was able to gain the strength and balance to eventually sit up on his own without being held and talk about smiles. Emma she was just beaming. That is completely amazing. Like it really sounds like card and the horses have such a powerful impact on people's lives. We call it the magic connection which can sound maybe a little bit goofy but you only need to be nearer horse for a few minutes to realize there is something very magical about it and then just by being who. They are They they gave us so much. And then all of the therapeutic benefits on top of that. It's just unbelievable. It really does sound like.

Well, he's got his wings all spread out, and you can see the membranes. And he's oh tiny. And they only way I don't know like ten twelve grams which is about the weight of two quarters. So the next time you go to the dollar store and you're holding fifty cents. That's about how much one of these bass ways. Really a little tiny guys. Yeah.

And so one of my favorite things to do is to bring people out to actually see bats up close because a lot of times. It'll change the way that they feel about bats, which is one of the most rewarding aspects of this work for me. Once we're finished doing an I'm over the adorable baby bat, Jessica got to work. I she had to figure out how old the bat was by measuring the distance between two joint bones and its wing. I've got a microscope here that oddly enough, I actually back light with my cell phone. Because that's the best way to see the joint, and I measure the gap through the microscope. She also drew blood from the tail in collected pellets poop that the bat left behind in the bag. And then there's the issue of bat milk. Oh love the job of a scientist. I know bad milk is actually really difficult to get. Sure. I'm sure it is it really is like milking a cow or any other animal. It's just that they're so tiny. What was it? Like the first time you melt the bat. Very difficult. So has tested my patience. But yeah. So the first time I ever milked that we were catching them earlier in the night. And so they hadn't really produce a lot of milk it. And so I wasn't sure if I was doing it wrong, or if the batch just didn't have milk. And so the first one that I was able to successfully milk like, I don't we? I think like through our hands up into the air and like jumped up and down because we were so excited that it finally worked. I can imagine not too many people have successfully milked the bat probably not enough to make cheese even. Yeah. I think artisanal cheeses thing for good reason. Be like a tiny little pellet. I should also say that you really shouldn't try to catch a bat yourself because there's definitely a risk of rabies noted. So what does Jessica do with all these bat fluids and measurements? She uses them for a little bit of science detective work to figure out what the bat have been eating. So I'm going to be doing stable isotope analysis from the milk samples, and then also from insect samples stable Tope analysis is a technique that reveals unique chemical fingerprint and bat food Jessica's challenge is to find those fingerprints within samples of blood in the pellets of poop from the babies once she does that she can track how the bat diet changes from milk to insects over the course of the summer. So that's really cool. But why is it important to know? How bats are weaned one of the reasons is simply that we don't know. That's our. Are are pretty under studied up till now. And so there's a lot of really basic questions that we just don't know about that. So that in itself is enough to drive me to ask a question. But it's more than that. What Jessica learns could be really important for conservation. Meaning how we protect animals species and their environments understanding the most stressful periods with the highest mortality rates are really important. I guess a classic example of that is our protection strategies with sea-turtles we often will put cages over Ness of seater legs because an easy thing that we can do to help increase sea turtles over ship. And so it's it's kind of the same idea there. We wanna make sure we know as much as possible about their life history. So that we can make the best decisions. We can. So I guess we want to do what we can to make sure that more adorable animal babies survived to become even cuter adults. So they can have another generation of even cuter animal babies. It's a circle of life. Circle of cuteness. So a huge part of making that happen is protecting animal habitat Jessica's able to do her research because group called back conservation international Fahd the land that the back. He was on in order to preserve it conservationists, the real life people and really anyone could grow up to be a real bad person. It's not just for superheroes. You know, five years ago. I never ever would have guessed that this is what I would have been doing. I guess it'd be right next to the largest group of of mammals in the whole world. And that's not a lot of people get to do that and get the privilege to study them. So I feel extremely fortunate that that I'm the kid gets to do this. If you were a bad person.

"Here Rangers earth ranger, Emma here employed, you I have a treat for you today. We're going to present an episode from our friends at the tumble podcast. It's all about bats tumble podcast is a science podcast for kids. And every episode tells a fascinating story of science and discovery if you're looking for great podcasts, the whole family can enjoy track tumble. We think both parents and kids guaranteed to learn something, new smart and fun. And personally, I'm a huge fan. So without further ado, here's the episode. Hi, I'm Lindsay and our Marshall. Welcome to tumble the show where we explore stories of science discovery today. We're headed to the bat cave. You mean the place where Batman and Robin? Hang out waiting for calls about crimes and Gotham city. No, it's way cooler than that. We're going on a field trip to the biggest back Coney in the entire world where we'll meet a bat biologist and find out how bats learn to be bad. One morning this summer. I got up to watch the sunrise on an old ranch outside of San Antonio, Texas. But there was one element of the sunrise. You can't see or hear anywhere else in the world. That sound is wind passing over millions of bat wings. So this is the beginning of when the bat start to rain down in the morning. That's real life bat women's lash bet biologist Jessica dryer, I met her around six AM near the entrance to Bracken cave, which is home to fifteen million Mexican free tailed, bats fifteen million bats. Yeah. It's the largest concentration of mammals on the planet when you are standing by the cave, and you look up into the sky pretty much as far as you can see upwards. You'll just see these little dots appear out of the sky, and they'll just drop straight down. And they've been clocked at about forty miles an hour dropping into the cave. And so I mean, literally, thousands of bats will be raining down over you coming back into the cave, and it is one of the most cool otherworldly experiences. You'll ever. Have. It was like being in some sort of secret bat world, but what made it even more special was that this huge cloud of bats was made up only of mothers and their babies too. Big moms group. So we're approaching that point right now or the sun is starting to rise and more bats are starting to come in from a night of feeding are we going to get pooped on? Yeah. Yeah. If you're standing close enough to the cave. Yes. You will get some rain some urine rain and some poop landing on your head. Hope you brought your bat raincoat or should I say hoop coat? I actually don't have one. This is so incredibly amazing where else can you see this kind of thing not many places in the world. And you know, it doesn't seem to matter. How many times you've seen it at always blows your mind? Jessica seen it a lot all summer. She's been camping outside the cave in every night. She's up between two AM and nine AM catching bats. And that's what I've come to see wait. We catching bats dislike grabbing them out of the air like. How and why let's talk about why? The point of this whole project that I'm working on is to figure out. What's the transition? Looks like when a baby bat goes from drinking only its mother's milk to learning how to catch its own bugs. And then finally feeding itself entirely on books that catches itself. In other words, she's trying to figure out how that babies get weaned from their mommies. That's something we do is human babies, except you know, we don't start eating bugs. It's usually fruit or something avocado. Yeah. But so well, this is a delightful time for humans to spread you know, food all over their faces. This is actually one of the most difficult times in a young bats life. So you're a young bat, you're still growing you're trying to figure out how to fly how to echo locate. How to catch bugs all of this is happening at the same time, and your milk supplies that you're getting fed are decreasing. And so you are expending a ton of energy trying to learn how to be about. And you're the energy. That's coming in is decreasing. So Jessica's goal is to figure out how that process actually works and to do that she has to catch a lot of bats. So we're approaching the mouth of the cave right now. It's a quick hike from the viewing area where I met Jessica to the bat catching spot, and we really just stand right in front of the opening of the cave right in the. Middle because the bats when they're dropping down into the cave from the sky, they sort of aim for the the middle top of the cave. And so that's where the most bats, aren't it gives us our best chance of catching them. So I'm with my technician his name is Harry, and he has the butterfly net. And so he's just going to go ahead and stick the butterfly in that straight up into the air, and he doesn't even have to move. It catch bats with a butterfly net. Like, there's not a special baton at the bat just this circle floating in the air in the fly right into it already caught about and it's been about a split second that he's had the net in the air. So he just reaches end with his hand. And he's wearing a baseball glove or a golf glove. It's just a thin leather gloves to protect himself from that bites. And you might have heard that on the Mike. He just drops the bat into one of the little paper bags that. I'm holding open for him. And so I fully the paper bag over a close it up with clothes pin. And I write the time of capture on the bag. And so it is six fifty two. So there are bad bags. Can you get those at target? You actually can they're like regular Brown paper lunch bags the kind. You would bring the school. And then here's the thing after they catch the bats, the put them in a little cooler. This one's for launch. This one's for the bats. Yeah. There's no ace. It's just to carry the bads. He's already got. He just dropped the second bat into the bag six fifty three. So he's got the nut back up in the air. And he's already caught a third bat. So as I watched from about fifty yards away. I could see Jessica in Harriet standing in the swarm of bats raising and lowering the net like they're picking apples or something. All right. So we have ten bats. So we are just gonna go ahead and carry are cooler with our bags full of bats backup to the top of the sinkhole. So that we can work on our data collection. The data collection is the time consuming part to do that we walked back with the cooler too small clearing where there's a little outdoor lab that would just we have this table set up with all of our equipment on it. And this is where we process the bats. So what exactly does it mean to process a bad like they have to fill out a form and make sure they get their social security number, right? No. It means that they're going to go through a series of steps. To collect information about each bat. It starts with Harry weighing them while they're still inside the lunch bag. So once he's done. I just. Ahead and pull out the bat.

"Thanks for all those super ideas earth Rangers. Now, speaking of super skills, we're going to meet to the world's most powerfully toxic critters in the ultimate showdown. Meet our first contender, the world's most venomous creature, the bucks Jellison it'll be facing off against the world's most poisonous animal. The golden poison frog it's poison versus Benham and wait a second. Are venom and poison different ultimate showdown. Okay. Let's investigate the difference between venom and poison. I a couple of similarities between poisoning. Venom both are called toxins and both are really bad for you. But that's where the similarities end, then empoisoned are different. And the major difference is how the toxin is delivered to the unlucky victim poison has to be ingested. That means eaten or inhaled breath thin or absorbed through the skin. So a poisonous animal could only deliver this poison if another animal or person ate or touched it Benham on the other hand is injected some animals use their fangs to bite some spikes or Spurs were tend to to deliver. Venom of venomous animal has got to get the venom into their victim through a wound poison envenom similar, but not the same. How do I know all the stuff? Let's just say I was bitten by radioactive librarian. Okay. Unpunished the showdown. It's venomous box jellyfish versus poisonous golden frog. Let's see who's toxic superpower is strongest. Round one. The first thing we're going to look at is how easy it would be to encounter one of our toxic contenders. To find a box jellyfish you'd have to head out to the ocean. Mostly the northern coastal waters of stralia and around the Indo Pacific Ocean to find a golden poison frog you have to travel to the Pacific coast rainforests of Colombia. Neither of these toxic critters is easy to find. So I think this round ends in a tie round. Who? Okay. So both of these creatures are pretty tough. But which talks will incapacitate an unlucky victim faster. Who has the most toxic toxin if someone gets stung by a box jellyfish. They're in for a lot of pain sometimes for weeks and weeks after the sting and a box jellyfish sting can definitely fatal as for golden poison frog. They have enough toxin in their skin to kill ten people. That's crazy. Okay. This one goes to the golden poison frog Verschoor. I know round which one looks fiercer. It's the last round time to the side, which of these animals looks the fiercest closure is earth. Rangers. Imagine the beautiful ocean. In the ocean. You see a pale blue transparent jelly like creature. It has a buck shake bell. Best the top part of the jellyfish and the bucks has fifteen long tentacles hanging from each corner. Each tentacle can be up to ten feet long. Also, each tentacle is covered in St. sells out. Now. Imagine you're in a lush green rainforest in Columbia as you're walking. Something catches your eye. We spot a bright yellow frog about five centimeters long. It's incredibly vibrant, and well sort of a door -able, really. But don't touch it or you'll be sorry. Okay. I think the scarier critter in this case is definitely the box jellyfish, tentacle terrifying. So we have a tie both the box jellyfish and the golden poison frog win this showdown. And remember, even though these critters have amazingly talk superpowers, they're definitely not animals you're ever likely to encounter. So don't worry. You're safe. Okay. You're three injures. It's time to talk about a really important mission. I'm going to hand the mic over to captain conservation. And he'll fill you in. Attention earth Rangers. I need you to use your superpowers to help out with something important..

Might be cold up here, but is beautiful barren mountains everywhere to is actually home to some of the tallest of the toll mountains in the whole wide world. Actually, I wonder how long it would take a mouse to climb a mountain. That's a lot of steps for some teeny tiny feet. Speaking of steps. Let's take a walk. That is a Buddhist temple to bet is the spiritual home of Buddhism. And that's a religion that believes all living. Things are connected. And here to tell us more is my friend, Pamela. Hey, Pamela, does she like Lawrence? Did you say tell she della? Yes. I did does. She delay is how we say. Hello here in Tabet. Oh, well, tash elec-. Now, what can you tell us about two bitten mice C T? Is that how my say squeaky is the name for a mouse. And the noise that they make is very similar. It's. D S. I K you know, what that does sound like a mouse. Now, what did you try saying that with me are you ready? Seek mice are an important animal for Tibetans, many people grow up hearing a story called the country of mice a whole country of mice on the not quite this is the story of how some very smart mice helped defend our country against an invading. Army cool now Lawrence I need you to play an important role in this story, the leader of the mice. So I'm the mouse general. Do they have a span needle or toothpick? Like, I need to make mouse size sword right now. Anybody the stormy something? I'll not that hard. These story happens in a country with lots of people and lots of mice led by a good and kind human king. Everyone has plenty to eat Atari time after the film was have been through the fields the mice. Then collect leftover grains and bring them back to the homes. My magnificent mouses, but one year everything changes for the mice the harvest is bad. So the families have to take every last grain of rice when the mice come to the fields. There is nothing left for them to eat. Winter is coming. So the Lido the mice decides he has to do something he puts on his best clothes and scampers of to ask the human king for health. I'm sorry what I wear clothes. Why didn't you tell me on just gonna put some pants on right now? Give me a second. Okay. Ready? The good and kind king lives in a palace around by big walls. But the leader of the mice knows the secret way in in his Royal chambers. The good king. Here's a teeny tiny knock at the door. About answers, and almost doesn't notice the Mehta mouse at his toes, excuse me. So I am the leader of the mice. And I'm here to meet with my human compatriot, his majesty the king. The God is really surprised to see a talking mouse wearing clothes but figures it isn't dangerous so him in. The good king is also surprised to see a talking mouse. Majesty the harvest has been very bad and my small and furry brothers and sisters. We don't have enough food for the winter if you lend grain from one of your bonds, we promise to repay you next harvest seek the king is impressed won his never heard talking masks to hip thinks his to pick sold is cool and three as a king. He knows what it's like to be worried about your people or your mice. So the king agrees to lend the mice the grain and takes the leader of the mice to bond field from floor to ceiling with food. Every mouse in the land comes to help collect the food. Great work is love the enthusiasm. Stay balanced, the grade on the backs stuff it's in the mouth and Kerry s much as they can't they pose God is I'm so proud of you carrying bag of Polly old on your road fantastic. Winter comes and it's very cold. But then it soon turns to spring that into summer, and it's time for the next house. The mice a true to their promise and repay the king by failing his bond with grave. This is another story. Not so fast Lawrence all is not well. The evil ruler of a neighboring country declares war on the good king. The evil rule. Elites is huge army to a river that separates the two countries and is preparing to go to war. The leader of the mice spots the evil army soldiers across the river and scampers to the kind king to want him. Catch my breath quick king. You saved our lives with grain last winter. Let us help you defeat this evil enemy. The king has not idea. How AT BT mice could defeat a human army? But then again, maybe they can he asked the mice. What they need listen closely because without this. We can't win we need one hundred thousand cakes of dried yet poof, wait. Did I say dried yak poop? Yikes. Huge animals that look like oxes where we're going to war with their PU. Yep. That's right. The thing about, yuck. Pu is that it floats. Really? Well. I think I know this is going the good king has no idea. How cakes of dried, yuck. Pu will defeat an evil army, but he agrees anyway, he then get some unlucky duly remand to call. The smelly stuff to the riverbank.

It didn't really work out Lawrence and his team are podcast friends from Australia. And I think you really like their show animal. Sounds far is all about the weird and wacky stories. We humans have with animals around the world like Roosters saving lives in Portugal or camel, beauty queens in the Middle East. You know, what I think we should take a listen to my favorite episode.

And now it's squeaky-clean today way going to meet a rodent that loves to run up corks and play hide in squeak. Can you guess who it is? It's the mouse. So I've seen my scarring around here and there, but I've never actually had a pet mouse before have you? But I want to know what you already know about this little critter. Myself, quiet smart. And I think mice achie- key and disgusting whenever you see. It's just a blur. And then it goes between you couches and stuff, and you can't see it in my new house to every single time when we move into this like a lot of mice. And then there's some dead. My sometimes disgusting. They can do all the tricks that have tiny legs the ability small, so they can do going to slow spaces. I've been at say Delic disgust noodle. Something good. I wouldn't say they're like fifty and Ida full. Some interesting observations there. Now, let's see what Laura out animal expert has found out. Lawrence debase learns to base. This is Laura I've been here ratting around for facts. You'll jokes are really cheesy today. Laura, actually, I've been spending some time here at base and thinking about mice when it comes to mice us people just concierge to make up L minds OB I pissed all the world's cutest companions. Do. We love them. Like Mickey Mouse. Do they make a scream when they run along the floor. The answer is we feel all of these things about mice. At once this tiny little scarring squeaking ferry animal has had a big effect on him big affect on humans. How what do you mean? I mean, one mouse stealing out cheese. Okay. But when it becomes millions of little mice who become a plague. It's terrifying. These mice can eight their way. Through everything crops and even 'cause talk about a mouse attack. Yeah. These little creed is do have a lot of strength in numbers. This also a long history of mass love in Japan, for example, people kept fancy mice. These were house must that had been dimissed decayed as picks. So your saying that some people think there are too many mice and others want to make more mice. I'm way too confused as little animals have us running a rounding circle. I guess we'll have to make up our own minds on today's safari, then I guess you will speak soon Lawrence over and out. Over and out Laura today where heading to one of the highest spots on the planet to meet our small theory friends where going to two bets. It's in Asia. And it is so beautiful lots of very high mountains. Oh, wait. I just remembered a joke, which is so relevant right now. Ready? What kind of car does a mouse drive? It drives a minivan. You get like a mini van like a small van. Such a joke. The magical Safai Mabille is the opposite of a mouse minivan, though, I mean web big with us where loud and where going come on Hoppy in.

"Earth. We'll tiny muskrat succeed and help rebuild the world. We'll find out after a quick break. Rangers. I'm Rebecca sheer welcome back to circle round today. Our story is called turtle island. When we left off little muskrat had taken a dive into the water, she was seeking soil to rebuild the world after a big flood to other animals otter and beaver had already tried it. They were strong swimmers, but both critters had come up short. So when teeny tiny muskrat volunteered otter and beaver to hopeful. Can you believe that Wimpy thing believes she can save the entire world Polly's? I'm totally with you autre. Did you see how slowly she was going? She won't make it ten feet down before she has a bus backup for breath. I mean, what does she think she's doing I don't know what she thinks? She's doing. But I sure as had no what she is doing. Yeah. Let's making a fool of herself. But why saw things differently patience friends, perhaps we shouldn't be so quick to little muskrat may vary will surprise us old the animals waited for muskrat to return, they waited for one day as they had for autre, then two days they had for beaver, but still no sign of muskrat otter and beaver rolled their eyes. What did I say if I couldn't do it with my extensive diving experience, and I couldn't do it with my superior strength and swimming skills. There's no way muskrat Kim succeed turtles smiled. That's my friends. Succeeds isn't doing knee about experience, the strength the animals waited another whole day and another whole night as the chances of muskrat returning slimmer and slimmer tensions got higher and higher. Get that big paddle of tail off of me will I would offer if you weren't taking half my space weights 'Second as the Pickering continued a small ripple formed in the water. Turtle was the only one who noticed any kind of deal like that. Stoop cliff? She gestured toward the water. As author and beaver shut their mouths and peered over the side of the log, what did they see floating on the surface of the water, but muskrat she was barely breathing. Turtle. Hurry to scoop the tiny creature up. Oh, most grant to y'all. Turtle gently laid muskrat on the log. She was too exhausted to talk all she could do was open one bright I and give turtle week grin beaver and otter screed over to see what was going on. She doesn't look so good. Not good at all as turtle stroked muskrats soaking wet for she noticed something muskrats tiny fist was clenched tightly when turtle reached down and uncurling muskrats clause. Can you guess what she found inside must grant you did it you boots soil back from the bottom? Oh, I knew you could do it little one that just no otter and beaver couldn't believe their eyes. But they quickly wiped the surprise looks off their faces. A we. We believed in new to muskrat. Good job kid. Yeah. Yeah. Didn't doubt you for a second. Welcome back. Turtle looks down at muskrat than fixed otter beaver with a steady gaze. Oh, right friends. Here is what we must do take the soil for muskrats grew. And please it on my show. Pat it down with water, so it sticks. Then we can begin the work of rebuilding all world. Carefully otter into beaver followed turtles instructions they scooped up the dirt for muskrat and petted it onto turtle's shell immediately. The wind picked up as gusts blew in from all four directions the soil on turtle's shell began to spread. It spread all across her back. And then kept spreading soon. The ridges of turtles back transformed into valleys hills and mountains and grass trees and bushes began to sprout from the soil before long turtle was bearing the weight of a whole new land after all that little muskrat had done. It was the least the wise creature could do. Today. Many people refer to this new continent as North America. But some members of the jib way group and other Canadian first nations tribes, call it turtle island, and if you look closely on a map, perhaps you can make out the shape of turtle, and maybe just maybe a hint of muskrats tiny, but mighty touch.

The great spirit known as kitschy Manitou was watching over all the people of the earth. But the ruler of the world was not happy with what he saw. No one was getting along the treated one another so poorly. They argued about who owned what that's my fish. Are you kidding? That was my fish trap. They insulted each other. You're the slowest person I've ever seen. No, your the slowest person I've ever seen. You are. No, you are as they gossiped. Like there was no tomorrow. Can you believe how selfish us he hunted all afternoon on someone else's hunting grounds? Then brought everything back to the village and shared it with his family as if he'd cut it on his own land. It was chaos kitschy Manitou had a strong helper named Thunderbird one day. The great spirit told Thunderbird. Heard. It was time to start over to cleanse the earth and get rid of all this bad energy. But kitschy Manitou wanted those who were good or at least trying to be good to be saved. Thunderbird? Do me this favor lift you'll wings and take flight? Give a tap to all those who are are Moni, and peaceful and tell them to get ready for a big flood urge them to build rafts and boats and prepare to swim one week from today, the great brains will begin to fall so Thunderbird did as she was told a week later. Sure enough, the rains began to fall and fall and fall. Soon. The land was flooded. The people saved by Thunderbirds warnings stayed in their boats and on their rafts once the rain stopped a group of animals climbed up onto a single log in the middle of the water. There was a venturous otter wets up folks that was some rain eager beaver. Sure was what a close one scrappy muskrat. Thank goodness we all survived and wise, turtle who had received some valuable advice from Thunderbird before the flood. Listen if we were. Now that we have made it through the flood. There is one way we can build on that. And. End Thunderbirds says only need is a handful of earth from the bottom of this water that should help us get things going again turtle lifted her wrinkled legs one by one with these stubby legs. It would take me forever to peddle the way down and back again. So I wonder could any of you swim to the bottom grab some of the below and Benito up to this is. I can't utter always raised her hand. I she loved a good challenge, a usual. Ulta. We don't even know how deep this wall to is. Oh, I've got this. I'll be back before you can save two. Shakes of an otter tail author lifted her paw and gave the other animals a high five then she leapt off the log and dove into the water with a splash beaver turtle and muskrat watched otter swim deeper and deeper soon her slender furry body had disappeared completely minutes past then hours, then an entire day the animals were beside themselves with worry until. Well, the good news as I'm back. But the bad news is I couldn't find any earth, I dove again, and again and just never reached the bottom. I'm willing to try one more time, but I'll need to rest first turtle cocked her head to one side. Thank you for trying to. I'm sure I speak for everyone. When I say, I'm glad you're okay. But you need to rest. Let's give someone else a child's. Any takes me me me. Turtle nodded at beaver. Oh beaver. There's no doubt about it. You all a strong swimmer? I sure am. And looking for things is my middle name one leaves twigs unit. I can find it beaver was so excited he slapped his pedal of a tail on the log as it bobbed up and down in the water. He other animals grabbed on with their feet and claws. No, go, right. Me you go get it will do this busy beaver is about to save the world. And with that he flashed a big grin jumped from the log and landed in the water with a splash now as with otter beaver took his time two days later, he returned to the log. And when he did he was breathless and didn't check did. I'm so sorry friends. But I couldn't find any dirt. I must've done dozens of times. But I couldn't find the bottom of the water. Sheesh. How could it be anyway? Turtle gave beaver a smile be. I'm so relieved your who. Right. I don't know how much longer this. Love can keep us afloat move. How much longer the people can live on their offs? And in that bodes not to mention the bugs who have no place to land. We need to figure out something. The group was silent for a moment as they punctured their potential fate. Then suddenly well little muskrat piped up. Maybe I can try muskrat looked at her fellow creatures with hopeful is, but what was she met with? Laughter. In fact, otter and beaver were giggling and snickering heart. They could barely stay on the lawn. That's a good one month. Sure is have you noticed how puny? There's no way you can make it to the bottom of this water. But there was one animal who didn't laugh at muskrats proposal. Instead turtle looked muskrat straight in the eye and smiled musk despite what the other say. I believe you could do this beaver and otter were stunned into silence had turtle lost her mind. But not a second later puny little muskrat took a deep breath and down down down she dove to find some earth.

"Hello and welcome to earth Rangers podcast. I refrain Emily. Earth rangers. Earth Rangers love animals and take action to protect them. And we also love talking about nature and wildlife. What's the fastest animal in the world. What's a baby king group called our their dogs that can climb trees do butterflies like to eat butter. These kinds of questions fascinates and together we're gonna find the managers today. We'll start our quest for animal knowledge by investigating the largest land welling carnivore and will also meet a bird that has flippers instead of wings. But first it's time to play, who am I animal guessing game. Here's how it works. We're gonna play sound and you'll have to guess what animal that sound belongs to listen closely. And at the end of this episode, you'll find out if you were right ready. Here we go. Okay. I think I have an idea. We'll play it again for you in a little while, but now it's time for. Okay, close your eyes. And let me take you on a journey to the south pole. The production value on this podcast is amazing. I can feel the Antarctic killed the wind. Today we're talking Bill. Now penguins aren't there average Burke, they have wings, but rather than flying, they use them for swimming. In fact, their wings are basically flippers. This makes them great swimmers, especially when diving underwater. The fastest species the gen two penguin can reach speeds of up to thirty five kilometers per hour. That's about as fast as you going downhill on your bike at top speed. Emperor penguins are the tallest species standing nearly four feet tall. The smallest is the little blue penguin which is about sixteen inches. Wow, they were so cute. I wish you could see them. Actually, you can. You can find some adorable pictures as well as all the other pictures and videos from this episode at earth Rangers dot com. Slash podcast. Own all. There are seventeen species of penguins, and they can only be found in the southern hemisphere around the south pole. That means even though they share similar tastes when it comes to climate penguins and polar bears, literally live on opposite ends of the world from each other, which is funny because that kind of brings me to our next segment. Animal investigations on animal investigations. All right. So a couple of weeks back, we got this phone call here at the earth Rangers headquarters. Let me see. Oh yes. Here. Message. One. Hi, this is earth reinjured lawn eight years older than you guys came to school a few weeks ago. I was wondering if you could tell me why pull the has white for you guys know that cash stuff. Right. Okay. Very by. Polar bear for? Well, I mean, yeah. I mean, I totally know that kind of stuff. I'm just not one hundred percent. You know what? I'll just take my microphone and see who can answer this question around here. Bill, what do you think polar bears are? White has something to do with the snow. No. But I mean, what happens if the jump in the water? Did they turn blue. Christina. Do you think you can help me out? I'm trying to solve a mystery. Do you know why polar bears are white fire polar bears fight? No, I was asking you. I don't know. He, Lisa do you. Polar bears have white coats whether for white is actually clear and their skin is black. What black that didn't really help.
