This Week on Explore (3/8)

Welcome to Fitz Facts! Naturalist and former park ranger Mike Fitz is BACK with a new weekly series that helps educate us about our beloved wildlife! Tune in every Thursday!

Though today is International Women’s Day, we believe in championing women year-round. From female scientists and researchers to leaders in the non-profit world, we’ve met many amazing women since explore.org’s journey began. Please take time to watch a playlist dedicated to some of the many incredible women we have had the pleasure to meet. Watch here!

    Hi,Mike! I don’t comment on things very often – but I did read and enjoy your comments on various animals. I guess people are just caught up in the season and all of the recent news BUT I have to say, I love your new look! That’s a great photo!
