An interview with Kierán Suckling, founder of the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), is presented. When asked to provide a brief history of the company, Sucking refers to Peter Galvin, who was doing Mexican spotted owl surveys for the Forest Service. He argues that the best way to save endangered species was not going to work inside the government. He adds that his first major victory was a Mexican wolf reintroduction lawsuit in 1990.
