Why you should care about this missing salamander

The World Economic Forum lists biodiversity loss as a global threat. Vox environmental reporter Benji Jones joins guest host Courtney Collins to discuss the problem of lost species — including one called the Blanco blind salamander — and why it’s so hard to protect animals when the scientific community isn’t sure if they still exist. His article as part of the Vox Down to Earth series is “Why scientists are desperate to find a salamander that’s been missing for 71 years.”
