Good Natured, Sofia Castelló y Tickell & Julia Migné

Good Natured is a Conservation Optimism podcast, where you can listen to uplifting chats that shine a light on conservation challenges. In each episode, Sofia Castelló y Tickell & Julia Migné interview an inspiring conservationist (including a penguinologist. Yes, really.). Their guests come from a variety of backgrounds – artists, scientists, business owners, and activists – and engage with conservation in a variety of ways. They talk about their challenges and successes, and their hopes for the future of nature. 

Recent episodes include: 

  • conservationist Rachel Ashegbofe Ikemeh talking about conserving chimpanzees, the importance of mentorship, and being a woman in the field;
  • penguinologist Tom Hart on the dynamics of polar ecosystems and creating a sense of home in remote places; and,
  • plant ecologist Sara Lil Middleton about seeing beyond the “green carpet” to understand grasses and climate change and her work to promote equality and diversity in the biological sciences.
