Today’s guest is Greg McCann. Greg has a very interesting story. He has taken it upon himself to travel to some of the most remote wildernesses of Southeast Asia to find isolated ecosystems where not only have very few people have ever ventured, but very small populations of highly endangered species still exist. He then sets up remote camera traps, in hopes of capturing proof of these animals’ existence, to encourage support from nonprofits and governments to protect these areas.
He has located critically endangered Sumatran tigers, found Asian elephants in an area where people hadn’t seen proof of their existence in over ten years, and is hoping to discover a previously unknown population of orangutans.
Lastly, we even get into detailed stories of sightings of a creature known as the orang pendek, which is essentially the bigfoot of Southeast Asia.
