Three world explorers — a photographer, an acoustician and a scientist — talk about documenting wildlife in the most remote places on Earth. We'll track jaguars through the jungles of Belize, scope out rare mountain goats in India, and eavesdrop on barking baboons in Zimbabwe.

Guests:

Bernie Krause, bio-acoustician; CEO and president of Wild Sanctuary, Glen Ellen, Calif.

Frans Lanting, wildlife photographer, contributor for National Geographic

Alan Rabinowitz, director for science and exploration at the Wildlife Conservation Society
