JOHNS, Newfoundland (Ammoland.Com) – Renowned conservation authority, speaker and author, Shane Mahoney, announced the launch of his podcast, “Conservation Matters with Shane Mahoney” now available on iTunes and Stitcher Radio.
The content is driven by Mahoney’s speeches given around the world on scientific issues and challenges impacting global conservation in the 21st Century. Additionally, Mahoney is offering audio files of his most popular articles penned for consumer magazines such as Sports Afield and Outdoor Life as well as scientific journals such as Canadian Journal of Zoology and more.
“My keynote presentations on wildlife, conservation and similar topics are each unique in delivery and content as it largely depends on my audience. Conservation Visions has a vast audio library to which we are drawing from for the Conservation Matters podcast,” said Mahoney. “It is becoming increasingly apparent that we need to develop new narratives and methods to connect with the modern public – many of which are unable to attend my presentations. Our hope is this podcast offers a bridge or gateway to keep the conversation going on conservation matters.”
