Ken Hayes, an invertebrate biologist, and Jack Kittinger of Conservation International were our guests for a live, call-in show about conservation. How do we protect the natural beauty of our islands? And how do we pay for it?

We discuss not only looking after land and water, but also vulnerable plants, animals, and the many other parts of our overall environment. And whether charging tourists "green fees" would be a feasible way to fund conservation efforts.
