Resistance Radio - Interview of Mary Chalke and Lisa Linowes

I've always been a nature lover. Living on Nantucket, the beloved, critically endangered North Atlantic Right Whales have been part of my life, as it is for all those who live on the island. I became aware in 2019, of a proposal to transform one of the whales' last nursery and feeding sites, into the nation's first, largest in the world offshore wind array, of 1,400 turbines. I became alarmed to learn the developers were given a special permit to interfere with the whales' basic behaviors when necessary during construction. Our government permitting agencies also intend to use this first array as a "test bed" on our whales and ecosystem, to establish regulation of the industry going forward. I formed Cape and Islands Wildlife Conservation Alliance, to spread awareness and engage those who wish to stop the projects, until adequate studies and steps are in place before construction, to save these magnificent whales from extinction."

Lisa Linowes resides in rural New Hampshire and has been a leading figure in the wind energy debate for nearly two decades. She serves as Executive Director for the Windaction Group, a national advocacy focused on the impact and policy issues associated with industrial wind energy development. Lisa has testified before Congress on environmental issues, and she has held elected and volunteer positions in community planning and land negotiation.

Resistance Radio - Interview of Paul Webb

Paul Webb began career at a famous zoo that specialised in captive breeding programs for rare species. After eight years left with the conviction that captive breeding has no role to play in the conservation of species or habitat. Worked for the ruling family of a Gulf State for many years, turning half the country into a wildlife reserve, and looking after the largest herd of Arabian Oryx in the world, which was by then extinct in the wild. Organised and funded numerous projects all over the world to preserve the rare flora and fauna and participated in field work to secure the habitat of numerous species. Produced a book on the wildlife and environment of the region for the ruling family. Spent four years in the remote and forbidden zones of the southern Maldives writing and producing a book on the environment for the President's Office of the Maldives. Now a full-time writer and researcher specialising in the conservation of habitat and wildlife, having recently published my latest work 'The Second Level of Extinction - Wildlife, Conservation and the Myth of Captive Breeding in Zoos' and am presently working on a volume about the Black-Footed ferret captive breeding and reintroduction scheme by the USFWS.'

Resistance Radio: Interview of Michael Webber

Michael Webber is a motion picture producer/director who spent much of his early career producing scripted, theatrical films released by studios such as 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate. In 2010, Webber departed from the world of fiction films to pursue his passion project, a ground-breaking cine ma-verite  documentary about the underground exotic pet trade in the US titled, The Elephant in the Living Room. The film would go on to win 5 Best Documentary Awards, earning its place among the top-rated films of the year and releasing as the #1 Independent Film in the US.  Webber was awarded the coveted Genesis Award from the Humane Society of the United States for his contribution to animal welfare in his motion picture work.  He has been featured guest on countless television and radio talk shows, including appearances The Today show, ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly New, and Nightline.  His work was also the subject of an ABC 20/20 special. His most recent documentary is a continuation of his investigative work into exotic animal trafficking in the US, but from an angle that nobody saw coming.  Titled, The Conservation Game, Webber’s new film blows the lid off America’s most beloved television conservationists, exposing their secret connections to the exotic animal trade and their decades long ruse on the American public.  The film started off its world premiere with a bang, winning a Social Justice Award and has movie critics drawing comparisons to Blackfish. According to Variety, the film has recently scored a raft of international film sales and is just now releasing in the US after a limited theatrical run.
