In this episode, something different. A few months ago I was asked to host an episode of UNpacked, tackling the question: what is ethical wildlife tourism? This is that investigation, originally released by www.afar.com/unpacked.

There's nothing quite like a magical, transportive animal encounter—but how do we ensure those encounters are good for the animals (and good for the places we visit)? Journalist Byron Pace, host of the Into the Wilderness Podcast, takes us on a journey around the world, talking with wildlife experts ranging from a shark scientist in Australia to a California-based biologist.
