Shifting Baselines podcast

In this series for Lush Times, Charlie Moores and Dr Rob Sheldon look at recent conservation or environmental stories discussed on social media through the lens of ‘shifting baselines’, the accepted thresholds for environmental conditions which are typically being lowered as we forget or are unaware of historical conditions – the ‘new normal’ in other words.In this episode, Charlie And Rob discuss ‘shifting baselines’ in bird and insect populations with the help of an example from naturalist and campaigner Chris Packham.Photo: Turtle Dove, ©trebol_a, via Flickr Creative Commons.
