Tigers & Snow Leopards
This time on The Children's Hour we learn about two of the most endangered big wild cats: tigers and snow leopards. The Kids Crew visit with the Senior Carnivore Keeper at the ABQ Biopark, Casey Taylor who teaches us basic tiger facts, and what is stressing them in the wild. We also hear from Sarah Vogel at the World Wildlife Fund about how each one of us can impact conservation of tigers in our everyday purchases. Snow leopards are elusive and difficult to study. Marissa Niranjan from the Snow Leopard Trust explains the unique challenges these big cats face as their range and numbers in the wild are greatly diminished.
The Universe
This time on The Children's Hour, we go far out into space with Dr. Katie Mack, author of the book The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking). Astro Katie is a theoretical astrophysicist whose current focus is on the timeline of the universe, from its birth through its death, billions of years from now. Dr. Katie Mack Dr. Mack explains the shape of the universe, and its composition. We explore black holes, and learn if the notion of an ever expanding universe still holds true. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGNN7hK1rfA We have a lot of questions for Dr. Mack, and the show is mixed with an excellent "universal" soundtrack.

Backyard Wildlife
What's wild about your backyard? This time on The Children's Hour we explore creating a backyard or balcony to attract wildlife, in a visit with a "more than human geographer" Laurel Ladwig. She's part of a movement of reconciliation ecologists who are encouraging people to increase habitats around our homes. Planting flowers and other plants in order to attract wildlife to our yards helps critters who need more nectar, pollen, shade and food to survive in our artificial urban environments. Backyard Wildlife Some wild creatures are dangerous like rattlesnakes, but others only look scary, like vinegaroons. Both live in Cade's yard in the southwestern mountains. How can we encourage species that we enjoy while discouraging species we would rather not attract? We learn about why it's so important to seek out plants which are native to where we live. Here's an online site where you can learn more about what species can thrive around you, and survive the effects of climate change. Photo by James Wainstcoat on UnSplash The kids also meet Jim Battaglia from Wildlife Rescue of New Mexico, to learn what to do when we find injured wild animals in our yards, parks and playgrounds. This show is mixed with excellent music to encourage everyone to get outside, and plant something. Don't forget the City Nature Challenge happening worldwide April 29 - May 2, 2022. Find out more!
