HomeGrown 11/29/09 – Plant Extinction & Black-Footed Ferrets

Animal and plant extinctions raise their ugly heads on HomeGrown this week. The Louisville Zoo’s Guy Graves talks about his almost 19 years in a national program working to save the black-footed ferret.  Dr. Brad Cardinali of the University of California Santa Barbara explains the potentially disastrous effect of the loss of a seemingly-unimportant plant species on all the other life around it.
