On this edition of Global Journalist, a look at death squads in the Philippines and government efforts to quash reporting on them.

Spring Brings Birds and Bird-Watchers

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 20:51:09 +0000

The changing season means migration for many birds in Missouri. But as the weather warms up, birds aren't the only ones that will be outside. With birds come birders. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, nearly 46 million Americans watch birds. John Besser is the vice president of the Columbia Audubon Society. He has been bird bird-watching nearly his whole life. Birdwatching fits with human nature and the desire to collect and learn about what's around you, Besser said. "Some people get interested in all sorts of different (things) butterflies, you know whatever, fish, plants," he said. "But birds are, you know, they’re beautiful. They’re visible and audible. They kind of attract attention to themselves so it’s kind of natural. And they’re so diverse. Once you start there’s always something new to see." More than 300 birds regularly call Missouri home throughout the year. Birds here reflect many regions of the country. Missouri lies in the middle of the country and has a

Discover Nature: Prescribed Fire

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 18:46:26 +0000

For thousands of years, fire has shaped natural communities in Missouri. This week on Discover Nature, watch for smoke and fire on the landscape. The first European explorers to document the Missouri wilderness noted American Indians’ use of fire to preserve grasslands for bison and promote regrowth of fruits, berries, and many other natural foods that flourish from periodic fires. Today, this ancient tool remains relevant as ever in managing pastures and woodlands for wildlife and food production, and combating invasive species. By removing leaf litter and dead plant material, fire returns mineral nutrients to the soil as ash, and releases carbons bound in plants back to the atmosphere. Although fire can breathe new life into the landscape, it can also kill. Prescribed burning can quickly turn into dangerous wildfires without proper planning, training, and resources. Learn how to use fire responsibly and prevent unintended harm and destruction by contacting your local conservation
