NGSNavigators Podcast Encore #12 - Tyus D. Williams

 

On this podcast encore, we take a look back at Episode 35 of the NGSNavigators Podcast featuring Tyus D. Williams, a wildlife ecologist. Tyus shared with us his research on sea turtles and jaguars.

Be sure to check out the original Episode 35 blog post for these resources, show notes, and more!

Note: Tyus has asked to acknowledge and correct two mistakes made during his statements in this episode:

1. Statement: Felids are apex predators in almost every major biome.

Correction: Felids can be found in every biome on Earth and many are apex predators utilizing resources from ocean and freshwater systems as well. They are also found throughout Alaska and Canada, where some parts of the geography veer into the Arctic circle. An example of this species would be the Canada lynx.

2. Statement: There are 47 cat species.

Correction: There are 38-40 species of wild cats that are recognized.

Margaret's legacy as the host of the NGSNavigators Podcast is one that will not be forgotten. Helping teachers and promoting science education was a passion she worked tirelessly for, and she loved sharing it with this community.

"One of the best parts of the podcast is really getting to dive deep with science education researchers, and to hear what's going on. You don't always have time, especially when you're in the school year, to sit down a read a research paper or a journal article, because they're intense. But to listen to a conversation with somebody, there's these nuggets you can get and then you can go back and read the article and get more out of it."  -Margaret O'Sullivan
