28: Bald Eagle as a Proxy

In this episode, Stuart and Carolyn speak with Bill Route, a recently retired National Parks Service scientist and author of a new study on PBDE contamination in Bald Eagles. The news is somewhat good! But of course there are caveats! Plus, we unveil the new Teach Me About the Great Lakes Hotline, which you can call to tell us your Great Lakes Story: 765-496-IISG (4474). Give us a call and maybe we’ll play it on the air!
