Have you ever tried birdwatching at a landfill? In a world where we produce more than 2 Billion tons of garbage each year, it's hardly surprising that those mountains of waste have developed a life of their own. From landfills to small town dumps to scraps of food left behind by tourists in the Galapagos Islands, animals are evolving in big and small ways because of their proximity to our waste. Whether it's Darwin's finches or Edmonton's coyotes, animals that live near humans have a Disneyland of potential food sources. It's also full of potential risks. Join Niki Wilson and Jay Ingram as they explore Trash Animals and how our perceptions of these creators are impacting how we treat them.
