Ep 21: Saving the Paiute Cutthroat, with Bill Somer

Until his recent retirement, Bill Somer was a Sr. Environmental Scientist with the CA Department of Fish and Wildlife. Much of his career was spent working on the conservation of a native species of cutthroat trout, the Paiute. Once on the brink of extinction, this fish has made an impressive comeback thanks to the hard work of folks like Bill and his colleagues. In this episode, we talk about the history of the Paiute cutthroat, the threats this species has faced, and the recovery efforts by the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
