Birds Go Begging For Water In Klamath Refuges

Jul 27, 2017

The wildlife refuges of the Klamath Basin are great places to see (and hear) birds in great numbers.

But the numbers would be even greater with an additional ingredient: water. 

Status as a wildlife refuge not only does not guarantee an allocation of water, the refuges are used as farmland in some areas. 

Jes Burns from our EarthFix unit investigated the situation for a series of reports (here's part one). 

She joins us in the studio for the airing of all three reports, with a debrief at the end.
