On episode seventeen of The Urban to Country Podcast, I sit down with conservation legend and visionary, Shane Mahoney. Who is Shane Mahoney you ask? "Shane Patrick Mahoney is the President and CEO of Conservation Visions Inc.. A Newfoundland native, he holds both an Honors and a Masters of Science degree in Zoology from Memorial University of Newfoundland. Mahoney has over 30 years experience working primarily as a scientist, wildlife manager, policy innovator and strategic advisor; but also as a filmmaker, writer, narrator, TV and radio personality, and lecturer – all within the scope of the greater conservation world, encompassing both the scientific and professional wildlife communities, as well as NGOs and the hunting and non-hunting public (from Shane's website)."
This episode took place in Bozeman, MT at the Can We Bear the Bias event, hosted by the Western Bear Foundation and the Right to Roam Podcast. Shane and I discuss Shane's career in conservation, Conservation Visions, the Wild Harvest Initiative, telling our story, and some much more!
