On this special one hour of THE WILD with Chris Morgan, I'll explore natural silence, and how being quiet out in the natural world and having places to do that can be pretty transformative. I'll also spend time in the trees with a forest therapist and talk to author Florence Williams about the healing powers of nature and I’ll go searching for the one of the quietest places in the world in Olympic National Park.  THE WILD is a production of KUOW in Seattle in partnership with Chris Morgan Wildlife and Wildlife Media.

The polar bears of Hudson Bay: cubs, climate, and calories, part 2
The Wild with Chris Morgan
by Chris Morgan, Matt Martin
10M ago
We learn about calorie counting for polar bears and what the future could look like for the Hudson Bay polar bear population. We’re back in the helicopter with polar bear researchers Dr. Nick Lunn and Dave McGeachy, searching for mother bears with cubs.  This is springtime over the huge, frigid landscape. Mother bears are waking up after eight months of fasting and heading out to the sea ice of Hudson Bay.  Looking across this hostile environment - nothing but ice and biting cold wind - really makes you think about what it takes for these bears to survive. And how they’ve evolve ..read more

The polar bears of Hudson Bay: cubs, climate, and calories, part 1
The Wild with Chris Morgan
by Chris Morgan, Matt Martin
11M ago
How the changing seasons of our planet are shifting the traditions of the place, the polar bears, and the people of the north. This sea ice of Hudson Bay is what makes life possible for polar bears. It’s as important to them as the air they breathe. Every year, hundreds of bears move through this area and they’re forced to come ashore in the summer when the ice melts — a grueling annual migration that pushes the bears from ice to land and back to ice again. But there’s one group of bears that’s not out on the ice: mother polar bears. Right now, they are still on the land, cozy in their dens, n ..read more

A coyote walks into a Quiznos
The Wild with Chris Morgan
by Chris Morgan, Matt Martin
11M ago
How these canids survive among city skyscrapers and sidewalks. And what that can teach us about saving the planet. In April of 2007, a coyote walked into a Quiznos in downtown Chicago. It walked inside the front door, right into a fast food restaurant full of people. And then, it sat in a soda cooler for an hour. It was an event so rare, it made the evening news.  Why did the coyote walk into the Quiznos? How was it so tolerant of people? It's not normal for a wild animal to be less than six feet away from a human without a care.  Sometimes you start to think about a story that you w ..read more

Invasion of the Burmese pythons, part 2
The Wild with Chris Morgan
by Chris Morgan, Lucy Soucek
1y ago
Who let the 200-pound python out?  Today, the origin of the Burmese python problem in the Everglades. And how science is being used to try to solve what seems like a losing battle.  I'm back in South Florida, in the Everglades, on the side of a dirt road next to a canal. It looks pretty similar to where I met Anthony Flanagan and Kevin Pavlidis - the two python bounty hunters from the last episode. Out in front of me are miles and miles of marshland. Today, we're diving back into the Burmese python problem. But this time...we're doing something a little different. We're letting the p ..read more

Invasion of the Burmese pythons, part 1
The Wild with Chris Morgan

In the Florida Everglades, the Burmese python is an invasive species that's close to triggering an ecological collapse. But not if these python hunters have anything to do with it. Burmese pythons are huge compared to the native snakes in Florida. They can measure up to 20 feet and weigh 200 pounds. The females lay up to 100 eggs. And they eat just about everything, from animals as small as a mouse to as big as a bobcat or an alligator. And they’re causing immense destruction throughout the Everglades ecosystem. So much so, that there is a team of bounty hunters out to catch and kill as many a ..read more

The worst wedding gift in history: an Irish tale of predator helps prey
The Wild with Chris Morgan
by Chris Morgan, Lucy Soucek
1y ago
On this episode, join me in Ireland for a very Irish tale!  If you’re from where I live in the Pacific Northwest, squirrels might not seem very special. It seems like all I have to do is look out my window and I’ll see one, bounding across the grass. But in the British Isles, the red squirrel is a bit of a “British darling.” They’re a species on the brink of extinction. It seems like everyone wants to see this fluffy-eared, threatened species bounce back. (including me … I did my master's degree on them after all in the 90s).  And the tale of this creature has become very curious her ..read more
