On Tuesday December 16th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, we are excited to be welcoming Dave Foster, Executive Director of the ACCA, to Natures Talk Show to discuss cave conservation. We will learn some fascinating details of cave ecosystems and groundwater issues. There are amazing animals and plants that have evolved in cave conditions. Created on An Ecological Mandate
ACCA is concerned with all caves, regardless of their mode of origin or location. However, most caves are found in the earth’s more water-soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, marble and gypsum. The lands in which these types of caves are found are called karst or karstlands.
In karst, there is appreciable groundwater movement through dissolved-out openings in the bedrock; karstlands often have features such as sinkholes, sinking streams, springs, and sometimes caves.
Approximately 20% of the United States is karst. In karst, the surface and the subsurface are intimately connected; cave and groundwater resources cannot be widely used without careful land use of the surface. Simply put, clean caves and karst equal clean water.
Monday December 15th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, join New Mexico Museum of Natural History field paleontologist Ken McKeighen as he and Ken Boorman discuss the echinoderms, a group of animals that includes crinoids, blastoids, cystoids, starfish, urchins and sea cucumbers.

On Friday December 12th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman will be discussing how to successfully keep and raise lovebirds. Perhaps some of the most beautiful birds who also generally mate for life. Lovebirds are 13 to 17 centimeters in length and 40 to 60 grams in weight. They are among the smallest parrots, characterized by a stocky build, a short blunt tail, and a relatively large, sharp beak. Wildtype lovebirds are mostly green with a variety of colors on their upper body, depending on the species. The Fischer’s lovebird, black-cheeked lovebird, and the masked lovebird have a prominent white ring around their eyes. Many color mutant varieties have been produced by selective breeding of the species that are popular in aviculture.
