Many people have seen her memorable work in the films "The Birds," "Marnie" and "Roar," without realizing that actress Tippi Hedren has another important connection to animals: She is the founder of one of the oldest wildlife sanctuaries in the United States. Hedren talks about her films, her love of animals and her pioneering efforts to protect them. Also, Sam Litzinger speaks with New York University professor Maurizio Porfiri about his groundbreaking development of a robotic fish to influence behavior of the real thing -- and in the process, aid species conservation.
