Ep.2 – "In Defense of Prairie Dogs" feat. Deanna Meyer
Voices for Nature & Peace
Episode Two: "In Defense of Prairie Dogs" with guest Deanna Meyer. Deanna Meyer is a long time environmental activist. Born and raised in Colorado, she gained a deep appreciation for the land and its living communities but came to recognize that everyone she loved was under attack. In 2015, she began her fight on behalf of prairie dog colonies along the Front Range when she launched a campaign to protect a large prairie dog colony from extermination in Castle Rock. She has been campaigning and advocating for numerous colonies and prairie communities ever since and intends to do whatever it takes to save this keystone species and the communities they support. Deanna is the executive director of Prairie Protection Colorado, which advocates for prairie dogs by drawing attention to the mass exterminations of prairie dog colonies along the Front Range, and by organizing and resisting the destruction of the last remaining prairie communities. PPC organizes on-the-ground and works with local governments, the media and legal channels to cast a web of protection over the last remaining prairie dog colonies. I first made contact with Deanna in November 2017 when researching an article entitled, "Slaughter in Colorado Highlights the Prairie Dog’s Plight," which was about the extermination of a colony in Longmont Colorado by a construction company. We spoke on March 4, 2020, and the topics we covered included Prairie Protection Colorado's mission, the ecology of prairie dogs, the crimes against nature of the state of Colorado and the federal government, and the big picture of US American culture and its war on the environment.

On this week's episode, Kris DeFoer, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, joins Host Deanna Meyer to talk about why she chose to pursue a career centered around nutrition. Kris explains that she didn't always make good nutrition a priority in her own life and how, after a few health issues, she embraced nutrition as a solution and reaped the benefits of doing so. Kris now helps people understand their own bio-individuality as it relates to food and guides them on their own path to better health through nutrition.
