EcoMyths: Do wildlife need our help in winter?

For this month’s EcoMyths segment, we address the myth that “winter wildlife don’t need our help.” With Jerome McDonnell to pick apart this myth is Kate Sackman, founder and president of EcoMyths Alliance. Bill Zeigler, senior vice president of animal care programs at Brookfield Zoo. also joins us. They’ll explain “why wild animals need our help (even though they are adapted to survive winter), and how we can help them, naturally.” (Photo: Flickr/cseeman)
