In Episode 3 of our 5 part podcast series, Shane Mahoney of Conservation Visions and Randy Newberg continue their discussion on the Wild Harvest Initiative, a massive, year over year, effort to collect and analyze data surrounding wild harvest and its social and economical impacts. In this episodes, Shane and Randy dive head first into some of the statistics gathered from Shane and his crew’s research, discuss the human impact on the landscape, as well as jump into hunting as a method of conservation.

Shane and his crew have worked very hard to collect data surrounding wild harvest and wild food consumption for the past 6 years. To see their entire breadth of work, please visit the Wild Harvest Initiative website.
