For more than 40 years, the Duke Lemur Center at Duke University has been studying the lemur to learn more about this fascinating animal, as well as opening their doors to visitors so they can learn more about lemurs. Charles Welch is the conservation coordinator for the Duke Lemur Center and he’s Thane Maynard’s guest on this week’sField Notes.
I have a confession to make. I have never seen a film by Japan’s master animator Hiyao Miyazaki, one of Japan's greatest animation directors, and founder of the legendary Studio Ghibli. His films have earned him international renown from critics as well as public recognition within Japan. Among the titles you may have heard are Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro and Princess Mononoke. Miyazaki is often referred to as the “Japanese Walt Disney.”
