This week we're talking about the abalone, a marine snail with a coveted shell and apparently delicious taste! These sea creatures were harvested almost to the point of extinction off the coast of California, but scientists are trying to bring them back! Listen to learn more about these conservation efforts.
Big shout out to amazing science journalism by Rosanna Xia and Wudan Yan.
