The Tallahassee Museum is part of a nationwide effort to revive the red wolf species. Once a dominant predator of the American southeast, red wolves were hunted into near extinction. Zoos like the Tallahassee Museum and island propagation sites like Saint Vincent Island help supply new wolves to the wild population in North Carolina.
Rob Diaz de Villegas is a senior producer for television at WFSU Public Media, covering outdoors and ecology. After years of producing the music program OutLoud, Rob found himself in a salt marsh with a camera, and found a new professional calling as well. That project, the National Science Foundation funded "In the Grass, On the Reef," spawned the award-winning WFSU Ecology Blog. Now in its tenth year, the Ecology Blog recently wrapped its most ambitious endeavor, the EcoCitizen Project.
Rob is married with two young sons, who make a pretty fantastic adventure squad.
