Mary Ellen Hannibal is author of the new book, Citizen Scientist: Searching for Heroes and Hope in an Age of Extinction. She’s a great story teller, and she’is one of those science writers who gets you to understand complex scientific ideas by her beautiful use of language and analogy. In this podcast she talks about witnessing the vanishing of sea stars, the feeling of holding a hawk, and how smart phones can make each one of us first rate data collectors.
