Fitting In, Standing Out
Today's Texas game wardens have dual roles as enforcement officers and educators. Meet one East Texas warden whose involvement with the kids in her community not only helps change their lives, but enriches her as well.
Wild Things: Venomous Snakes
What's that hissing sound from behind that tree? If it's a snake, chances are it's a harmless one. But there are venomous ones are out there, and that means you'd better be careful. We'll show you how to identify four species of venomous snakes found here in Texas.
The Burden of Bounty
The Gulf of Mexico is known to some as "America's Sea." In the first segment of a six part series on the state of the gulf, we'll explore the rich diversity of habitats and creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and the economic benefits they provide to the nation as a whole. We'll visit the beautiful coral reefs of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary, shallow meadows of seagrass in Redfish Bay and the longest undeveloped barrier island, Padre Island National Seashore, one of the homes of the endangered Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle. Last we will consider how the BP oil spill illustrates the inseparable dynamics of economic and environmental interests.
