IN: “From PRI and the Jennifer and Ted Stanley studios...” OUT: “Here is the number to call, and thanks!.” 
1.) SCIENCE AT RISK AT THE BORDER: Scientists working on the US-Mexico border face unique challenges when trying to study borderlands ecosystems, thanks to everything from outright harassment at the hands of Border Patrol officers, to tight restrictions on what natural materials can cross the border. They say it’s gotten much worse in recent years since the Trump Administration began advocating for a massive border wall as well as taking a hard line on illegal immigration and asylum seekers. Living on Earth's Bobby Bascomb is producing a series of dispatches from the US-Mexico border and discusses the challenges of doing science on the border with Host Steve Curwood. (11:31)
OUT TEXT: “Hi, I’m Steve Curwood, host of Living on Earth.

So please join us and support this station that brings you these important stories. Here is the number to call, and thanks! (:20)

OUT: “”...the number to call. Thanks!” 
1.) BIRDNOTE ®  WHAT’S YOUR STATE BIRD?: State birds are usually among the more common species in a state, but not always, as with the endangered Nene goose of Hawaii. And as BirdNote®’s MaryMcCann reports, in some cases they aren’t even native to the North American continent. (2:11) 
2.) GUINEA FOWL AND TICK CONTROL: Deer ticks can carry Lyme disease, a debilitating disease if left untreated, and one that’s becoming more common thanks to the warming climate. Now some homeowners in the thick of tick country are turning to guinea fowl to control ticks. Living on Earth’s Jenni Doering reports from Exeter, New Hampshire about one family’s experience with these tick-eating machines. (7:52) 
OUT TEXT: Hi, I’m Steve Curwood, host of Living on Earth.

1.) HBO’s “Ice on Fire” Offers Climate Solution: The Earth is warming and changing faster than many climate scientists had predicted, and at times the future looks impossibly grim. Yet practical and accessible solutions to climate change are already at hand. The new HBO documentary “Ice on Fire”, produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, focuses on these solutions as well as the dangers and on the scientists who are tackling climate change. Director Leila Conners joined Host Steve Curwood to discuss the making of the documentary and who it aims to reach. (15:18) 
OUT TEXT: Hi, I’m Steve Curwood, host of Living on Earth. We are committed to bringing you stories that document the dramatic impacts of climate change.

Please help us continue this important work and support your local station. Here’s how. (:22)
