Coffee and Conservation is hosted by Dr. Beth Baker, Assistant Extension Professor in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Aquaculture at Mississippi State University. Dr. Baker and her guests discuss everything landowners, operators, and producers need to know about getting conservation on the ground and how conservation supports productivity and profitability while improving land stewardship. The topics covered also provide science-based education for the general public about the challenges that land owners and farmers face while trying to retain their livelihoods and protect natural resources and habitat. From water, air quality, and soil to habitat, food production, biodiversity, and- we discuss the necessity and complexity of the science and application of conservation in the US.
