Wineries are using snakes, armadillos, bats, and pigs to combat climate change

Did you think every news story had already been written? Don’t be silly. There are wineries all over the world that employ armadillos, owls, pigs, sheep, and BATS, to help with pest control and soil health. One particular winery in Paso Robles, California, is the first to receive regenerative organic certification, a “new international farming standard intended to combat climate change,” according to Bloomberg. This delightful story includes treats like the vineyard in France that is experimenting with poisonous (!) snakes, and a winery in New Zealand that tried using guinea pigs but kept losing them to hawks.
