The air we breathe, the biggest, the brainless, the shiniest, striped mysteries, penguin knees, fireflies, frogcicles, and everything in between.

The Wild Life is a place for the curious, the adventurous, the hopeful, and the hopeless to discover new knowns and unknowns about the natural world and its inhabitants. The mission: to bring the traditional naturalist experience into the 21st century by merging immersive storytelling and foley art with technology and creative experiences.

It’s an exploration of truth, common ground, and shared places as we attempt to fill each episode with wonder, connectedness, intrigue, and humor.

The Wild Life was created in January of 2017 by, me, Devon Bowker (He/They) after finishing my degree in wildlife biology. It’s been amazing to see how things have changed over the past 5 years, both personally and here. I have tons of ideas and projects in the works and cannot wait to share them with you. Whether you’re a long-time follower or new to The Wild Life, thank you for being here.

Devon is a parent of two amazing children, high school science teacher, graduate student, geek of all trades, naturalist, science communicator/writer, President of The Open (Out)Doors Project, host and producer of The Wild Life, Class, Us, The Wild Life: 8D Soundscapes, The Wild Life KIDS, and Science People! and the creator behind #500DaysHappier.
