Park Service workers taking care of a Channel Island fox

'Substandard of Living' and 'Back From The Brink'

SUBSTANDARD OF LIVING

In this episode, SoCal Connected's Deepa Dernandes meets with Dario Pini, a landlord who calls himself a savior of Santa Barbara’s working class, but the City—and many of his tenants—have a different take on Pini. SoCal Connected looks at whether this self-proclaimed savior is actually a slumlord, and why it's taken officials nearly three decades to stop him.

Get an exclusive look at one of country's most beautiful and least visited national parks and see why it's often called the Galapagos of North America. It's home to one of the biggest comebacks in wildlife history. Travel with Val Zavala to the Channel Islands and learn how the Island Fox came back from the brink of extinction.
