Do you love wildlife and nature as much as we do? Would you like to hang out with experts and amateurs alike who have a passion for all things wild? Guess what?  We knew you would!  That's why we created A Talk on the Wild Side podcast where we chat with experts and enthusiasts in wildlife management, marine conservation, and hunting and fishing in South Texas.  Topics are as lively and diverse as the resources themselves--butterflies, quail, sea turtles, fire, ocelots, native plants and more!  This is a podcast for anyone who enjoys learning more about our natural resources in an engaging and entertaining way.  

A Talk on the Wild Side is created by the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute and supported by the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi Harvey Weil Sportsman Conservationist Award.
