Cecil the Lion’s death caused an uproar internationally, so this time on #TheScienceInside we’re all about wildlife.
We hear why people care about Cecil so much from Dr Lochran Traill. Dr Vivienne Williams explains the shocking practice of lion bones being sold as tiger bones.
We hear some shocking truths about roadkills with Wendy Collinson, and how not all of them are accidental.
Lastly we speak to Dr Andrew Venter about how lions are being bread to be killed, and the documentary Blood Lions.
Remember you can download all of the clips to listen whenever you want!
