Psst.. Earth Rangers… today’s creature-feature is pretty slithery. Feeling a bit nervous? Nah! There’s no reason to be scared of snakes, even the dangerous ones are more likely to be more afraid than you, so if you keep your distance, they will not bother you. And the eastern milksnake is non-venomous and very cute.
Today Emma talks to Tyson Reid from Toronto and Region Conservation Authority about the Meadoway project. An initiative that helps protect many species that live in the Greater Toronto Area, including ospreys, the red foxes, and eastern milksnake. Tyson told us all about his adventures as a wildlife technician and what he thinks about snakes.
Then, on Emma’s Chemistry Corner – Emma will help you become environmental scientists, using red cabbage! Why red cabbage? It has a special molecule called anthocyanin that changes its colour according to how acidic something is.
To follow along with our colour changing experiment, follow the instructions on the show-notes page.
