Shownotes

This episode has it all: Quokkas, trivia, selfies, Australia, the La Brea Tar Pits, Conservation Paleobiology, and somehow manages to tie it all together. Dr Larisa DeSantis, Conservation Paleobiologist and professor at Vanderbilt University, is our guest and she tells us how she is using relics of the past to inform the conservation of species now and into the future.

Check out our new children's e-book on Kindle, Quokka's Aren't Cute!

Also, be on the lookout for the upcoming quokka kids book from Dr DeSantis herself, Fox Food!
