7/15/14: This week on Home Ground Radio: Dr. Jonah Western grew up in the 1950s on the "elephant trail" of southern Tanzania, where elephants, their habitat, their hunters - and their protectors - enjoyed a last bastion. Western became a scientist, studying conflict and co-existence between wildlife and humans. Neither the problems nor the solutions are simple, but in community-based conservation, Western has discovered a model that could be useful not just in Kenya, but in Montana.
