March 7, 2013: Ding Darling video on Iowa Public TV this week

Wildlife on the edge of the city.  2/25/13 (Kevin Kane)

This week, Iowa Public TV is broadcasting the production “Americas Darling: the story of J. N. Ding Darling.”  Paul Skrade and Erv Klaas are interviewed in the production. 
Ding Darling was an cartoonist for the Des Moines Register in the early 1900’s and is well known for his political cartoons, many about conservation.  He was the commissioner of the Iowa Fish and Game and the head of the U.S. Biological Survey, which was the forerunner of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  He was influential in the establishment of the first Cooperative Research Unit—which was at Iowa State College!  He started the Duck Stamp program, and he was the first president of the National Wildlife Federation .  The show is very informative and entertaining.  The schedule for this week and in early April is:
Fri, March 8, 2013 5:00 PM (IPTV World)
Sat, March 9, 2013 8:44 PM (IPTV World)
Sun, March 10, 2013 2:00 PM (IPTV)
Mon, April 8, 2013 9:00 PM (IPTV)
Enjoy it, if you have a chance.  You can see the “trailer” here:
