In this special edition episode, I chat with Zoo Miami Spokesperson and Communication Director, Ron Magill. Ron has been working at Zoo Miami for over 40 years and has seen his fair share of natural disasters. In the wake of Hurricane Ida and recent news of Hurricane Larry, the question needs to be asked…How Do Zoos Prepare For Natural Disasters like Hurricanes? Ron shares his insight and recalls when Zoo Miami was hit by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. He relives the terrifying time and talks about what they learned and how the zoo as a whole could be more prepared for future disasters. This is a MUST LISTEN for any animal care keeper preparing for a natural disaster!

Season Two of the Safari starts off in Miami, Florida, with Communications Director and Goodwill Ambassador Ron Magill!  Ron is a legend in the conservation community and the zoo field, and his skill as a storyteller makes this episode both the best start to a new season, and one that will inspire you beyond belief!  If there is only one episode of the podcast that you check out, make it this one! Contentl Warning: There are a few minor swear words in this episode, and also a very much adult-oriented story, which I give a warning about before it begins.  EPISODE LINKS: www.zoomiami.org www.ronmagill.org @ronmagillwildlife on Instagram @zoomiami on Instagram and Facebook ROSSIFARI LINKS: www.rossifari.com www.patreon.com/rossifari @rossifari on Insta, Facebook, and Twitter @rossifaripod on TikTok

Zoologist, and Communicators Director, Zoo Miami Show notes and links: https://www.markgraban.com/magill My guest for this BONUS episode of the My Favorite Mistake podcast is Ron Magill, the communications director for the Miami-Dade Zoological Park and Gardens (or Zoo Miami) — he's a zoologist and his “favorite mistake” story is one that only a zoologist could tell. I recently did another bonus episode with five personalities from the Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz. Ron is a weekly guest each Tuesday on their show. For that original bonus episode, I encouraged people to make donations to the Ron Magill Conservation Endowment, as I did. I hope you'll consider doing the same and it's a great cause. Today, Ron shares a story about how being young and cocky and careless with a crocodile managed was a "favorite mistake" because it happened for a reason... and it made his life better! I was able to get this story via the Cameo app and you can also buy a personalized message from him there, if you like. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/favorite-mistake/support

Greg Cote, Amin Elhassan, Chris Cote, Roy Bellamy, Billy "Guillermo" Gil Show notes: https://www.markgraban.com/LAF This is a very, very special episode of My Favorite Mistake. Today, I get to share five stories from some of the personalities who are part of the highly popular Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz. They are: Greg Cote (columnist for the Miami Herald and weekly guest) Amin Elhassan (former NBA executive and frequent guest) Chris Cote (Producer) Roy Bellamy (Producer) Billy “Guillermo” Gil (Producer) Each of them share a story (or stories) about their “favorite mistake(s)” from their careers. I was able to get video via the app Cameo, so I paid a nominal fee for each of them and also offered to make donations to a non-profit. This charity was started by a weekly guest of the show, Ron Magill, a zoologist from Zoo Miami — the Ron Magill Conservation Endowment. If you enjoy this episode and if you “get the show,” please consider donating to Ron's organization and its worthy cause. I first started listening to the show when they were on ESPN Radio, although I normally listened to them via their wildly popular podcast (it's often the #1 sports podcast in the U.S.). Dan recently left ESPN, walking away in the middle of a contract due to a number of conflicts, including being upset that Chris was laid off by “the mothership.” Le Batard and friends have been operating as an independent podcast, but recently announced a major sponsorship deal that is reportedly (if you can trust Greg Cote's reporting) bringing in $50 million over three years, as they build a new media company called Meadowlark Media. Congratulations to Dan and “the shipping container” and everybody associated with the show and their related podcasts and projects. If you're not a listener or you “don't get the show,” some of the stories contain show references that you might not understand. That's OK. Unlike Dan, I won't interrupt the episode to explain the jokes. I hope you'll enjoy it anyway. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/favorite-mistake/support

The pine rockland ecosystem is a mixture of a slash pine canopy, scrubby ground layer, and fossilized coral reef. Rocklands once spanned 185,000 acres, but over nearly 100 years of south Florida development, that has shriveled to less than 2% of the original range. An incredible amalgam of rare and endangered plants and animal species rely on the globally-imperiled pine rockland, including the Florida bonneted bat, Bartram’s hairstreak butterfly, and the tiger beetle. Today, a pocket of pine rockland is mired in controversy. Parts of a property surrounding Zoo Miami are slated for two separate development plans: One, a proposed apartment and shopping center complex with stores like Walmart, Chik-Fil-A and L.A. Fitness. The other is a 20th Century Fox theme park ironically named Miami Wilds. These plans have provoked the ire of many people and organizations who aren’t happy about them. On Saturday of Martin Luther King Day weekend, over 700 concerned Floridians gathered for the Rally for the Rockland to protest the planned developments. Their concern is shared by the Center for Biological Diversity, Pine Rockland Coalition, Sierra Club, the South Florida Wildlands Association, among others. What’s galling for the rally organizers, is what’s at stake if this globally-imperiled ecosystem is developed. What does it say about our state, that commercial development is privileged over ecosystem and resource management? More than that, what does it say about Florida, that we’re even having this conversation?
