Past interview with our recent visitor, Claudio Sillero: BBC Radio – Maned Wolf

Dr. Claudio Sillero-Zubiri of the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford University and James Marsh Professor-at-Large here at UVM was recently interviewed for BBC Radio 4’s Saving Species program about maned wolves (Chrysocyon brachyurus). The episode focuses on maned wolves that frequent a monastery in Brazil where monks regularly feed them from a veranda.
