A great conservation story! From zero swans to over 200 swans thirty years later! Thanks to one man and his passion, Harry Lumsden.
Our guest today, Liz Benneian, is the spokesperson for the Trumpeter Swan Coalition in Ontario,Canada. She shares the dramatic and soap opera like lives swans live (never a dull moment it sounds!) and how they are continuing to be protected and thrive. She also talks to us about a project that potentially threatened the wintering grounds of approximately 200 trumpeters at LaSalle Park. When I asked her the outcome of this project, her answer included something like...lets just say City Hall doesn't always win! So listen in for the entire story.
