Wildlife Day: Life Under and in the Snow

When snow covers the ground the world looks as if it is sleeping under a blanket of white, but life does go on. Wildlife biologist Jim Pease joins Charity Nebbe to discuss life under and in the snow and  how that white stuff benefits the burrowers, the hibernators, and other birds and mammals. 

Pease also discusses how snow is an insulator and a boon to wildlife for keeping warm and how even some amphibians benefit from the snow.
