Considered extinct by the late 1950s, the Shoshone pupfish was rediscovered 36 years ago by a woman who changed her entire town to preserve the species. We talk to Shoshone resident Susan Sorrells about her life and the fish, with context set by Mason Voehl of the Amargosa Conservancy.

Transcript coming soon.

Visit the Amargosa Conservancy's website and that of Friends of the Amargosa Basin. Here's the National Monument prospectus Susan Sorrells mentioned. If you'd like to watch the full interview of Phil Pister about the time he saved the Owens pupfish, you can do so here. Thanks again to the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley for providing the material we excerpted.
