Quantcast
Jul 172012
 

Bridgestone Tires was the first to go public with their concern for woodland creatures, during Super Bowl XLII.

Not to be outdone, now Volvo has announced it’s testing a new animal avoidance system and the folks at NPR’s Car Talk asked me, their official Animal-Vehicle Biologist, to share some thoughts on this development for today’s Staff Blog.

Soon I’ll be conducting a hard-hitting, 60 Minutes style investigative interview with company executives (or maybe a friendly chat with their PR lackey) to uncover answers to the questions burning rubber in my mind. Then I’ll write an in-depth guest blog for the Car Talk website.

First I need to learn to speak Swedish. But when I do—Watch Out!!

Kieran Lindsey

Kieran Lindsey loves looking for wild things in all the wrong places... so she became an urban biologist. Her quest to entice others to share this passion led to flirtations with (gasp!) the media—as a columnist for the Houston Chronicle; as host of KUNM-FM’s Wild Things; as producer of an Emmy® winning wildlife documentary; and at her Next-Door Nature blog. Kieran has way too much fun as official Animal-Vehicle Biologist for NPR's Car Talk, and she isn’t ashamed to admit it.
