Have you ever been on a road trip and had a hard time finding a place to stay, and when you finally found a place, it wasn't what you'd hoped? This is happening a lot in the animal world, especially for species who depend on snags (dead standing logs) for all or part of their life cycles. Join Carling Dewar to learn about the competitive market for snags, which species depend on them, and the solutions that animals and humans have come up with to address this problem.
