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.

A Tribute to Margaret O'Sullivan - Replay of NGSNavigators Ep. 38

 

This tribute to Margaret O'Sullivan features a replay of Episode 38 of the NGSNavigators Podcast. Interviewed by Todd Campbell, Margaret shared her experiences with NGSS as a 6th grade science teacher as well as the inspiration behind starting the NGSNavigators Podcast.

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.
