David O’Brien, NatureScot’s Biodiversity Evidence and Reporting Manager, explains what genetic diversity is and how it can help fight the twin crises of climate change and nature loss.
Highlighting examples of relevant projects, both here in Scotland and much further afield in Benghazi, David talks passionately about the potential implications for the future of many species.
A keen amphibian spotter and citizen scientist, David provides practical tips as to how we can all make more space for nature, and encourages us all to have a fondness for frogs! An enlightening listen.
