Today is a special day – it’s both Earth Day, and our 50th podiversary! – that calls for a party!! Earth Ranger Emma celebrates by sharing some great conservation stories, fun games, and a brand-new Junior Wildlife Reporters report!

Last year, over 1,000 of you pledged to protect Wolverines, and you raised over $10,000 to help researcher Mirjam Barrueto as she worked to learn more about the Wolverines that make their homes in Canada’s Rocky Mountains. In today’s episode Emma talks with Mirjam about her work.
