Conservation biologist Bill Toone, the Founder and Executive Director of the Ecolife Foundation, joins Treehuggers International to talk about his work in the federally appointed California Condor Recovery Team, as well as his current work with the Ecolife Foundation and the upcoming Walking 4 Water 5K at Mission Bay Park on October 4th.
Treehuggers International presents a special, encore presentation of our interview with David Rodriguez, who died of complications from diabetes on July 1st in Washington D.C., where he’d been serving as the Director of Communications and External Affairs for the National American Indian Housing Council. At the time of his appearance on Treehuggers International, David was in his sixth year at the Urban Corps of San Diego, where he was the Director of Administration and Grant Development.
David’s appearance on Treehuggers International was originally broadcast March 9, 2008.
A fan of FM 94/9, David grew up in the San Diego County outdoors learning to appreciate, value, and protect the environment, and he ably brought his knack for community organization and stewardship together with his passion for the environment at the Urban Corps of San Diego, which continues work at Chollas Creek, long a project of David’s, who also served as the Political Director for the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians and the CEO of the Native American Corporate America Business Conference during his long career of community leadership in San Diego.
