Which endangered animals do we choose to save?

by Eureka!

Rick’s getting heated about animal conservation this week! We explore some of the problems with conservation, including how organisations allocate funding, how colonialist attitudes are impacting local communities, and the lazy attitudes people have towards ‘protected areas’. We also find out how human instinct affects our decision making and wonder whether animals going extinct might just be a fact of life. Special thanks to today’s expert, Rebecca Nesbit.
