Warner Shedd, director of the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation, talks about how humans are moving into areas formerly occupied primarily by wild animals. He explains how urban sprawl is affecting wildlife, and how we can learn to live with wild creatures. His book is "Owls Aren't Wise And Bats Aren't Blind: A Naturalist Debunks Our Favorite Fallacies About Wildlife".
