Captain Paul Watson has been plying the world’s oceans for over 4 decades as the founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in efforts to save whales and rid the world of illegal fishing. The Sea Shepherds are infamous for ramming and sinking ships but in 2000, Watson changed tack. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh met with the captain at ARE Day this week in Snowmass. Here’s a clip from their conversation. Tune in to Valley Voices on Thursday, June 28, for the entire conversation.

Last week, the BLM's Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board voted to recommend euthanization of certain mustangs in short- and long-term holding facilities. Ginger Kathrens, volunteer director of the Cloud Foundation and a member of the Board, cast the only dissenting vote. KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Kathrens about which horses and why. (The BLM has yet to act on this recommendation. No horses in holding have been killed since Friday's decision.)
