Bobcats have rebounded in Wisconsin
For almost a century, bobcats faced a bounty in Wisconsin, and their numbers dwindled to less than 1,500 in 1980. We talk with a furbearer expert at the state Department of Natural Resources about how the animals made a comeback, how they’re hunted or trapped, and what people should know about them.
Youth sports as a catalyst for social good
Wisconsin ranks as one of the top 20 states for youth sports participation with more than 150,000 students playing a sport in the 2021-2022 school year. As young athletes begin their season, we talk with two advocates on how sports can be used as a catalyst for social good.
