Wildlife Eye in the Sky: Tales of a Helicopter Wrangler and Biologist

Is it a bird? A plane? Nope - it's a professional helicopter wrangler!

This week the GameKeepers crew sits between the turkeys with Andy Orlando, a hardcore gamekeeper whose profession is "helicopter wrangler". Under the employment of a private firm, Andy is contracted by various agencies to safely and ethically capture live animals, such as pronghorns, elk, and bears, via helicopter. From there, he pulls the animal out and performs any research or analysis needed in order to fulfill the contract.

Tune in to this episode as Andy talks business, shares his methods and some crazy stories, and tells the GameKeepers about his 10,000th successful catch-and-release. You don't want to miss out!
