BBC Investigation Finds 1300 Infants Died of COVID-19 in Brazil

"Let's move on to the country with a third highest number of cases brazil. There was a new bbc investigation. That found thirteen hundred. Babies have died from the virus. There paul can you tell us why this is happening. Because evidence so far i thought had told us that babies were unlikely to die from covid. Nineteen yea i think what people are beginning to realize. This is probably more to do with the fact that the brazilian healthcare system is collapsing. The necessarily that the virus of the various they have there are particularly bad. And they obviously they are particularly. But it's a bit like people in the developing world in very poor parts of developing world will die of diarrhea in a way that no one in the western world would do and the situation in brazil is. They have a lack of oxygen. So you'll having small children often very poor communities who don't have access to the basic healthcare that would keep a child alive in the west so you know they're doing a lot of resources trying to work out whether the variants they have in brazil having a was impact on on children. But i think what we're probably looking at is it's the healthcare system that's compounding this problem and if these babies had been born anywhere else in the world they would have had a better chance of survival.

"And democrats saying that. They're worried about the future of nature in addition because this was the eleventh survey that we've conducted we've now been doing this for over a decade We can draw some comparisons between what voters are saying now and what they've said in prior years and on almost all issues relating to the health and condition of nature in the west voters are expressing more concern today than they were ten years on. In fact in most cases the increases in concerns have been by double digits and even doubled in some cases. I thought it was very interesting to see how opinions about climate change especially have changed over time. Loria what have we seen here. Over the last decade we basically seem respondents telling us that this is a bigger concern than we've ever seen before even from last year we saw increased in that concern level so the very first year that we conducted the survey actually asked about global warming. We ask twenty seven twenty seven percent so that that was an extremely or very serious problem. That has double today in the same state so that we can compare apples to apples fair. It's up at fifty four percents So a doubling that intense concern about climate change and it's really gone up across the board gone up the most among republicans and independent voters in the west. Still going up by double digits among democrats. Who started at much higher levels of concern But that's a big shift and those who are most concerned. Today are those voters underage thirty five the youngest group that we look at Sixty one percent tell said an extremely or very serious problem in fact. Eighty four percent of those youngest voters. Tell us it's at least somewhat serious problems in their state. Can you tell from these numbers. How much of it is that demographic shift or how much of it is changing awareness of the threat. Well should. I think that we've seen a range of different issues popping up in terms of concern. I mean voters in the west have long been concerned about things like a low level of Water and rivers and inadequate water supplies. But now we're seeing really big concern as well about wildfires. It wasn't something that we had the foresight to to ask about In our very first year. But we've been tracking it for the last five years and we now have and ten voters telling us that wildfires uncontrollable wildfires threaten homes and property or at least a serious problem in their state with three and five telling us it's extremely or very serious problem. Surely highest in in states like colorado montana. But it's more than three quarters every single state and many of those voters that are telling us it's more of a problem now than they even thought. Then they saw ten years ago are telling us that that's attributable to changes in the climate in fact that was the most likely cause a for those who said it was more of a problem today than ten years ago along with drought but really focusing in on changes in the climate it also struck me that The loss of habitat is something. Voters seem to be much more aware of now than they were even a decade ago. So we've seen we've seen really rising concern about a range of different issues. I mean every conservation related problem that we asked about a decade ago is mel higher today and so loss of habitat again went up like vice. Seventeen points i remembering that correctly That's something that. Interestingly has gone up even in the in the last year. Just given i think some of the concern about the influx of people coming to this region Over the course of the pandemic and Building and development taking place in in a range of different types of communities not just in major cities but but really throughout the region.

High-quality public opinion polling is very hard to come by even more so when it comes to outdoors and conservation issues so this poll which is now in its eleventh year gives us incredible insight into what westerners are thinking. And how those thoughts have changed over the last decade. We're going to talk to pollsters behind it in just a minute but first let's do the news. It took mere moments for the oil and gas industry to start running around like chicken. Little as soon as president biden announced a pause on oil and gas leasing across the west kathleen sagana. the head of the western energy alliance. Trade group went on fox news to warn that. Even pausing new leases. We'll do this. And so this order yesterday would kill fifty eight thousand seven hundred jobs in eight states in the west where over ninety seven percent of the federal production is found. yeah it was a similarly dire story from the ceo of the american petroleum institute. Mike summers he went on the call with reporters to say that there are hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in government revenue at risk. Api is even spending more than a million bucks on tv. Ads that suggests school buses will vanish into thin air. Just because of a pause on oil leasing really does sound terrible. Doesn't it and there is just one problem with those dire predictions and that's if you ask oil and gas executives. They will happily admit they are doing just fine. The ceo of conaco phillips was on an earnings call. Now keep in mind this earnings call. It's regulated by the sec. You don't get to lie to investors and he said on this call quote. Conaco phillips has the flexibility that i've versity and the depth of low cost of supply and low greenhouse gas resource to manage through this issue without materially impacting. Our plans there is no equivocation there. No material impact. That is as definitive as it gets. It's a similar story. At two of the other biggest producers on public lands in the west both yoji resources and different energy have confirmed. They have at least four years worth of drilling permits on national public land. The chief operating officer of yogi told investor conference quote when it comes to access to federal lands. That's one of the things. Were really not worried about in our business. So if oil companies aren't actually threatened by this temporary pause and leasing. Why do they want the american people to think. The.

"You so much for giving us an excuse to make another episode of the podcast I pleasure and thanks so much for making another episode of the podcast. Could you tell us how the special got started? Sure. It was originally much smaller and for a different purpose feeders in America closed down on I think March thirteenth some of them. March. Twelfth including the theatre where I have a play on Broadway right now we're all buffering. So knowing how many people were out of work and the actors but the crew front of House ticket-takers Mile Job being bartender in theaters I got together with the Actors Fund which is an organization that helps anybody who works in theatre. And then the ground which had already been shifting underneath our feet to start accepting faster and more with the killings, of George, Floyd Brianna Taylor and on at are very and with protesters on the streets being met with tear gas in an nightsticks. So we thought that was worthy in organizations the actors fund is it was just not big enough to meet the moment. That's when we partnered with when we all vote as a nonprofit nonpartisan organization see if we could do get out the vote fundraiser. We brought in producing, Casey. Patterson who is really great at producing specials she hooked us up with Hbo Max who suddenly wanted to pay for what you saw I brought Tommy Tommy. Shlomi. And this was no longer going to be a zoom table read. What we thought was going to be until we all showed up to the SEC was a staged reading. It was going to be actors, stools, news stands. You'd kind of step forward when it was your seen. Tommy decided no. What we're GONNA do is take this episode arts fields landing and we're gonNA restage it as a play, and then we're GONNA film it in the style of modern playoffs. Aaron, what was your reaction to Tommy's idea to turn this into a stage performance? Well, listen I'll follow Tommy wherever he wants to go my first reaction was Warri to be honest with you because I thought we might be over promising and under delivering and so I just I hope in prayed that this thing was going to be as good as we were now promising that it was going to be. And Tommy couldn't have delivered more than he did. I can also say that the response makes it clear to me that the lovers of the West Wing you delivered exactly what they were hoping for. But one of the additional things is and it gave me a just like a shiver up the spine is pretty much from the first frame. It's an Ode to theater as a way west wing was because it's about the words ultimately end about the actors. Agreed that the set and production design was also wonderful but it felt like a love. Song Theater at a time when we were wondering whether that's ever going to be thing again, I'm so happy to hear you say that because when we went down, Tommy Nyein and the department heads to look at the orpheum theatre for the first time I happened to mention I'm really glad that we're doing it in a theater. In an empty theater for all the reasons that you said it just it's nice to be back in in a place like this, and that's when Tommy said I'll I'm gonNA turn the cameras around this? Isn't GonNa always be like you have the best seat in the house we're going to face the other way. We're GONNA see those empty seats also Tommy really picked up on it and ran with what you're talking. That's amazing. Aaron obviously you have a long history with theater but with Tommy and John Hutton for example, are they people who have theater backgrounds as well or was this a new kind of medium for them to work in? This was a new medium for them to work in and it was really so exciting seeing. Tommy, get excited by this listen we've always had play phone thing for the last twenty years where he'll make jokes about my theater background and doing place and suddenly he fell in love with doing lace and I know we started thinking about what other? What other West Wing and sports night episode is going to be. We do like this maybe we were wrong to do them on television. There's something so cool about the way that the sets and lighting have been abstracted to make the theater production. Of course, for many of the people watching if not everyone they, we've seen the original episode and I wondering how conscious you were of that people are going to be bringing in imagery and memories from their original watching. We were very conscious of the fact that hardly anyone a statistically insignificant number of people will be coming to this having never seen the episode before. So, we're kind of tickling their memories a little bit I had thought that in moments where you really need to see the action of it whether it's the seven, forty seven whether it's air force one or CJ's Jay's desk collapsing. Because of Charlie in that kind of thing that what we would do is cut to the episode a for a moment as Emily's reading the stage directions to show that moment Tommy didn't want to do that because he wanted to save that for the very end for the last image. And I really loved it. You Know Josh and I did our I play together. Right of few could map I've mentioned it once or twice. Over the lifetime of the podcast that was raked wooden stage with three tables and a couple of chairs on it, and that's it from which with light with sound from which we were to get one time obey the Washington Navy Yard, a courtroom, all of these things and when you can get the audience's imagination working with you when it can be that kind of collaboration I think you're doing everybody a favor. Exciting you let the audience, which as you say, the large majority of which had seen the ready bring something to the table to. which I liked I also want to say before we get into the episode proper I really liked I. Guess the words that you and I put in Brad's mouth for the opening I hate to say it but I think he also delivered it quite well, and convincingly, and one thing he said was we understand that some people don't fully. The benefit of unsolicited advice from actors. We do know that. And we feel at a time like this that the risk of appearing obnoxious is too smaller reason to stay quiet if we can get even one new voter to vote and you have less time than I to scour twitter for things like this but. There is an interesting response to the special and I think very, very off target by Jonathan Martin, who's a national political correspondent for the New York Times and he tweeted what is the constituency that both a remembers the cast of this show and be has to be reminded to vote and I've seen a couple of other people say similar things and I want to say in defense of the West Wing End of the. Special that this is missing a couple of very key points, one being that the special raised a significant amount of money for organisation others for one way. All vote over a million dollar seen the same reaction that you've seen you know that the ven diagram of West Wing viewers and people were voting is a circle. Even if that were true, it was a fundraiser and we have and we're not done yet supply through. We've raised over a million dollars for an organization that does have reach into those places secondly, in two thousand, sixteen in our last presidential election over a hundred million eligible voters didn't vote I simply don't believe that in that hundred million there aren't westbound viewers who are just I need to vote my state it's a red state. It's a blue state. My vote isn't going to matter I'm a flake. I'm just gonNA blow it off. There are those people and Also, nobody knows better than Ritchie and I that for the last two decades new West Wing fans have come to the show including in the last six months and parents sit down with their kids and the number of people that have come to me since the West Wing went off there and told me that they went into public service inspired by the show like this guy just just missing what the West Wing is and what the continuing legacy of. I agree but also the fundamental point of what a fundraiser does..

"The phrase forgetting to factor for sarcasm. Yes. Maybe, this is not for me to say, but maybe for you to say Josh. Brad looked a little deceptive. I thought like he's GonNa Burp then that's that's. That's like saying Bradley looked a little bit like Bradley. Said I'm a little scared stop talking because I. Don't know what's going to happen once I do. I guess we'll find out together. Here is Hartsfield landing. What I loved was that instead of fading to black. Simply The House lights went out. Yes there is a light on stage behind that. There's was a little bit of a difference in timing between the House, lights going off in that one light that had been on stage. The light on stage gets darker a little bit later and that was just enough sort of revealing of the seems to understand that this was a practical. Fade to black I thought that was cool. Yeah and just a nice way to serve tip their hat to what we were about to see. Oh, right. What's that word again when it's a practical thing I love that word. taught it's new years ago in the PODCAST digest back. Thank you. Didn't Brad look a little diabetic. Work my way back there. Yes and then I like I like the Emily proctor in that little box, right? That's right for the teaser. Andrews. Air Force Base eight four PM. Eastern Standard Time. Look, seeing Emily proctor and having her read the stage directions and I love that she was up in that special little box I remember as a kid I grew up going to many many Broadway shows because my dad was a little in theater and his best friend is big up Broadway producer and I always looked up at the box on the side and thought they looked really fancy and cool and wanted to sit in one until I finally had the opportunity to do. So it's really very terrible way to watch. You're really really like side. Yeah, and above the actors would you like this very fancy box so you can crane your neck. Exactly. So okay. So this teaser begins with emily reading the stage directions and it is this like really nice way to have yet another cast member who's not in this episode in this episode yes I'll even say, I, liked how she performed or executed her task I felt that on multiple occasions she led us in on the fun she was having being part of. It was palpable to me that she was happy to be there. I have to say I didn't really absorb it the first time around when I watched the episode the first time with the music coming in, and you know the text of the stage directions and just this feeling of Oh it starting hurry go i. didn't really get it I all I really got was hey, it's Ainsley. And then the episode started one of the things that prevented me from fully absorbing emily's performance of the stage directions was I kind of bumped on the taxed because it was strange to see text in the West Wing that wasn't set in the West Wing Font. You're unbelievable. You haven't changed a bit. We already know this isn't a regular episode of the West Wing in a lot of ways. So a big part of the experience of this whole thing was going to be noticing what is the same? What's different? That's part of the fun ray a little bit and I thought the texture. Really Nice. Maybe there was like a little bit too much letter spacing in the Serif text because it's all lower case. I think it's generally better to be conservative with that stuff. It was pretty but I still just like, Hey, they went another way with it. I wish I could watch the show any episode through your eyes. I. Hope You don't mean that nearly as. Much of a horror movie kind of way as I just interpreted it. As a compliment? I was wondering if there's anything that you could compare this experience to have you ever felt like you've watched something with a similar kind of perspective. As you watched this, you know this filmed staged adaptation of television show that you've already seen. That's an interesting question. I don't know that I have I mean the only thing that comes to mind is I sometimes. Will see a reunion of people are beloved cast of something years later thanked Oh you're ruining money you ruining my image of seeing you and your youthful prime and I maybe because I know everyone involved I didn't feel that way. I felt such a feeling of warmth and love and not that I you know I don't I'm not like eight just like I can't see anyone who's older. Have you ever been to a reunion concert from a band. Oh, that's that's a very good parallel. Yes I mean I've I've seen. You know I've gone to see bands play her way past their prime. It's usually I guess really what I'm trying to say is usually it's a somewhat depressing endeavor and I don't know if it's because my personal connection I suspected isn't that because I've read enough of re response and reaction on twitter. I think to believe that the majority of viewers felt the way I did which was. The gang's back together a love these people if anything they seem to have gained rather than anybody being office step, there wasn't any feeling to me that anyone didn't belong there and anyone wasn't in his or her prime everybody I felt looked great. Acting was wonderful each new even smaller role that was played by the original actor just would delight me more because it also just showed the sort of buy in that everyone has everybody wanted to come back and do this. I think it did remind me a little bit of seeing a band reunite I guess I've been to a couple of reunion concerts and they have a very specific kind of energy where the people who were there in the room are generally like super fans and they are just so thrilled about the idea of the concert. That really the ban has kind of. Already. Done eighty percent of the work. The other twenty percents. Just you know playing the song somewhat competently and if you can do it with some energy and some happiness than Gosh, I mean it's just it's a home run. Yeah. Look I think the cast of the West Wing wrote in on a wave of goodwill certainly but the difference between like live performance where you just take your memory of it with you and this..

"Now, they're offering it for free the sounds like an at it does just Code West Bank. They're offering for free. That's awesome. But alas, it's only available to viewers in the United States hopefully, audiences and other countries will be able to see it soon if not, well, hopefully, the podcast episodes still certified to listen to right and you're here now so you might as well keep listening, stick it out gut it up people. Here in the US, we've heard that the West Wing, he's actually gonNA leave Netflix and move entirely to Hbo Max, but that hasn't happened yet. So right now we're in the slightly strange situation where you have to go to net flicks or your DVD's to watch the original version of heart seals landing. But then you have to go to Hbo Max to watch US new. Episode which again is called a West Wing special to benefit when we all vote such an elegant episode title it was written by Aaron Sorkin with additional material by Aaron Sorkin and Eli Attie. It was directed by Thomas Shlomi and it's I started streaming on October Fifteenth Twenty Twenty. It's a film stage adaptation of the episode Hartsfield Landing, which is episode fourteen from season three. And this is a recorded podcast about the filmed adaptation of the staged. And we are bipedal organisms. carbon-based speaking into microphones I have to say by the way, I mean there is a lot of a many many many tweets devoted to trying to harass into doing this, which we kind of all although I I flat out explicitly said, we would not be doing it. We always intended to that's true. Right and it's I have to say. When did her podcasts endless January? This January. This January isn't this. January. Last January the January. If this. Pug has ended this January. What the Hell is last. January. Anyway, my point is nice to see you again we haven't spoken her. Or seen each other since then. Because we only exist in a podcast. We always knew we were going to do an episode of our podcast to go along with this episode when this special was announced because it goes along with our mission, which is to recap every west wing episode and I think this counts. So. Josh the two of us have known that this was brewing for months. That's right many months. So in some ways, this is a long time coming. That is true. Yeah. Coming up later we're going to be joined by Aaron Sorkin himself to discuss this episode but I what was your experience like watching this episode I think I watched it even though as I've always said, are often said as we make our podcast that I'm really not the hardcore, West Wing Fan that you are that many of our audience members are I feel like I watched like a hardcore West Wing Guy because it gave got chills at the beginning. Listening to the theme played by Snuffy and gang. So it all just sort of it pushed all the buttons that I think maybe I didn't even know I had let's start from the beginning. How about that so novel approach way when The episode begins with an introduction from televisions Bradley Whitford. He says we've gotten the band back together here at the orpheum theatre in downtown. Los Angeles to benefit a nonprofit nonpartisan. Called when we all although which it is wink wink. which it is certainly label and I think in spirit, it is a nonpartisan organization but when low voter turnout benefits, one party and voter suppression becomes the goal of a party somehow the act of voting itself has become partisan while said so by embracing this nonpartisan 'cause. And raising up the notion of voter turnout, the root cause for the special like the West Wing itself does actually betray a partisan bias look I mean I guess in plain words there is. One of our political parties as adopted a strategy of voter suppression sometimes legal sometimes not. So there's one side that is being encouraged by the president himself to intimidate voters at polling places. I, mean we're a bleak bleak moment in our history and I think it's nice that there's an organization like when we all vote that says voting is a right voting should be as widely accessible as possible to those who qualify to vote and that's it. That's the tweet right. So Brad's intro. Yes. What did you think is pretty good. I thought I thought it was very good to actually thought he delivered it well and I like what? You, Lion Aaron wrote from that is excellent. That had the proper amount of self deprecation. We went to when we all vote and said you guys are great organization. You're helping get out the vote and combat voter suppression. What can we? The People's Choice Award nominated cast of the West Wing do? They thought about it a moment and said, nothing you have no skills experience that can help us in any way. Why don't you go put on one of your little shows where everything works out in the end? And so forgetting to factor for sarcasm we said, sure. We're GONNA do a staged reading of an episode called Hartsfield Landing Her. That's that's always my starting point like I've always felt that way. So I like saying look we we know we're just actors and there's no particular reason why and the best thing we could think to do was put on a play I like that I thought it was not smarmy self deprecating but actually kind of on point which is like look we're going to put on a little show from that series you love and raise some money for a good cause. And not try to. Paint, we're doing as more important than that especially like the phrase forgetting to factor for sarcasm. Yes. Maybe, this is not for me to say, but maybe for you to say Josh. Brad looked a little deceptive. I thought like he's GonNa Burp then that's that's. That's like saying Bradley looked a little bit like Bradley. Said I'm a little scared stop talking because I. Don't know what's going.

"As climate change heats up the American west, it's drying out the habitat of many birds forcing them to move north where it's cooler. One such bird is the short eared owl. It may not be a bird you've heard of, but as melody Edwards found out, it's one scientists and bird still give hoot about early one evening. I meet university of Wyoming biodiversity institute, Zoe Nelson somewhere between Gillette and buffalo shadows grow long on red bluffs, and green sagebrush. We're out here as part of a program to get regular folks like me and my husband can. He's tonight's driver to help keep track of short eared owls. The program is called waffles that stands for, okay, this is a mouthful. Western Osceola flamy est landscape study is Latin for flaming in the right light. The kind of have this like orangey hue. That's Nelson and waffles is just one of several citizen science programs. She manages this one is collecting data on short eared, all's to see how climate change is impacting them. Two nights plan is for us to travel a dirt road where these all's are known to thrive, stopping every half mile to look around for them for a timed five minutes. And actually here we are. Dependent take. Over you can do. It u-turn. She coordinates volunteers all across the state. There's fifty of these grits total all placed in their native grassland habitat where our goals can hunt voles and mice. This project spans actually all across eight western states, but was her first year in Wyoming. And before we even recruited volunteers, we had all of the all of the survey locations signed up for each volunteer conducts two surveys one at the beginning of the peak breeding season and won like two nights at the end. It's a great way to collect data, but Nelson admits it's not perfect people sign up obviously for an ulcer, vague hoping to see ELS and if they do, that's wonderful, great. But if they don't see them, it's just as important to us and not seeing these als is becoming the norm. They are one of the most widely distributed als in the world. But Nelson says in recent decades, their numbers have nosedive. Down by three quarters of the last forty years. The national Audubon society listed as climate endangered, and it's on Wyoming's list of species of greatest conservation need. So we're not really counting on seeing one. All right. What can we step outside still see what we see. We stand by the road looking through binoculars in every direction. Nelson takes notes, cloud cover particular, but no owls. So we get in the car. Yeah, at this next stop right next to the highway, Ken spots a bird. There's something flying over there. Oh, is that is a short. You really, where are you guys? You got to see. Oh my gosh, he his flappy all the bird books say the best way to know you're looking at a short eared. Owl is it's quirky, flight pattern. They call it moth wake, but that's not the only way defies typical owl behavior. It also doesn't hoot. An angry cat. Not not. Here's one I found on a bird website. Continue on our servant as the sun goes down. We make our way to the north side of the grid near several ponds. Jeff lebaron is with the national Audubon society that's working on a climate watch of the world's birds. He says, short, eared, owls, rely on wetlands like these for nesting. He says, housing and energy development, a replacing ponds like these engraving, marshes and pollution. And you know alteration of habitat that they need to to Ness down here lebaron says birds with really specific needs like short eared, owls, and their reliance on marshy. Nesting sites are the ones most likely to feel the effects of climate change. He says warming temperatures are likely to dry up such pots, forcing owls to move in search of better sites, much of their current wintering rings the climate suitability in over the next eighty years likely to move northward and that means in order to adjust a warming temperatures. There. Going to have to move year round into their usual wintering areas. We finished our last survey and turn the car around or just heading back when was there this that actually might be of, wow.

Wow, you know, the embodied power and strength and whatever that elusive thing we call read of his, but the embody even more to the fragile ecosystem where they serve as an apex predator with its seven foot wing spans incredible eyesight and sharp talons of the top of the food chain. And as an adult, there's another predator above it will play on nobody's eagle. That's right. So it's like wolves, even great horned. Owl can be considered a an apex predator and Preston says, such predators helped balance the entire ecosystem community. Alot them out here, that means all the way down the food chain to the rabbits and the sagebrush when cotton tail populations crash or go low, then equal reproduction really drops his will and vice versa when the rabbits come back, the eagles really produce much more effectively. But in many areas of the American west. The sagebrush where those cotton tails thrive is filling in with invasive cheat grass that grows fast, but burns even faster. So you start burning cheap press and guess what replaces it more grass..

"I'm Mike Schweitzer birds playing important role in the health of an ecosystem. And Wyoming is home to a diverse population of birds, including raptors, like the golden eagle and the short eared alal- scientists are tracking the population of these birds and the effect of climate change on their habitat. The Draper natural history museum at the buffalo Bill center of the west, opened a new permanent exhibition earlier this summer. It focuses on the last ten years of research on golden eagle activity. In the big horn basin golden eagles are top predator. So by studying the top of the food chain, researchers are learning not just about the bird, but also about the dynamics of the animals they eat and the ecosystem. They live in Wyoming public radio's. Camilla Cadel joined the team on a scouting trip. I'm in a car driving through the big horn basin with the golden eagle research study group from the Draper natural history museum in Cody, Corey Anco spots in eagle. Inko is the system curator at the Draper. He's part of senior curator, Charles Preston's team, Preston, and his team have been researching golden eagles for the past twenty years when he first arrived in Cody, there was no data on the eagle realize we had no idea what was going on in our own Bighorn basin here. And so I thought it was important to document and so we can not only compare it with other sites, but we have a baselines and find out if the, if the if there is a trend of increasing or decreasing population, reproduction that word baseline is key precedence hoping to tie his research in with other golden eagles studies. What we're trying to do is develop a network of monitoring sites. That's Brian Woodbridge. He's with the US fish and Wildlife Service and is in charge of leading the western golden eagle team, which is a west y group of dispersed teams. Focusing on golden eagle conservation and management. He says, the baseline research is what allows golden eagles studies throughout America to become a unified network where they share results and methods and try to try to develop a more comprehensive picture of what's going on with golden eagles in the west, starting in two thousand eight after winning enough grants to support the basic amount of research press and began to collect a bare minimum data. This includes tracking reproduction and the food remains in the nets. Then depending on the amount of funding some eaglets received a satellite tracking device as well as leg bands and with constant collection of what seems like not that much data patterns began to pop up. We found very early on that the diet is dominated absolutely dominated by cutting tales in our area, not many Jack rabbits. We found a huge. A very strong relationship between golden reproduction any given year and cotton tail abundance in that year. So what they found is that the golden population heavily depends on one species for food caught entail rabbits, and this led to even more questions and understand what may cause that in what the implications of that not just for golden eagles, but for other predators, but also for the vegetation. And maybe even the the quality of Grey's for for domestic livestock Inca. The Curators assistant says the initial data collected gives a clear image of the dynamics of the big horn basin ecosystem. Every species every ecosystem here is a different piece of that puzzle. And so when you step back, you put all the pieces together, you kind of look at the big picture of what's happening in sagebrush stub ecosystems. What's happening in the inter mountain west, and you know what's happening as climates begin. Shift or a debt as we dry through the area. The researchers explained that sagebrush is the ideal habitat for Goldens since they can easily spot their prey. But Preston says eagles are not the only ones that could be impacted by a change in the ecosystem. So he envisions creating discussions and conversations on the sagebrush steppe ecosystem itself. It's all the same big piece of landscape in it affects lots of people and lots of people acted and we have this opportunity to look at conservation, a large scale, and a real big picture with all the stakeholders in the room. The monarch of the skies exhibition will hopefully continue this dialogue as exhibition, educates the public on the importance of studying the diversification of an ecosystem for Wyoming, public radio.
