These days I am mostly known for my work writing about endangered species, but I love writing career articles -- especially articles about green careers. Here's my latest for IEEE-USA InSight:
Power Up: Sustainable Energy Brings Sustainable Careers
Squirrel! Conservationists Cheer as Giant Squirrel Recovers, Leaves Endangered Species List
Amazon Trees Face Extinction Crisis, but There's Hope
Northern White Rhino Dies, Leaving Just Three on the Planet
And finally this week, here are three new articles for TakePart, covering wildlife trafficking and climate change:

Finally this week, here are two fun new science stories for (you guessed it) Scientific American:

Nextinction: Ralph Steadman Goes Gonzo for Endangered Birds
I wrote one other SciAm article this week, but it was slightly less fun:
Frog Mass Extinction on the Horizon
Speaking of less fun, yeah, here are three more downers for TakePart:
When Butterflies Shouldn't Fly Free
China’s Obsession With Pet Turtles Threatens a Rare Philippine Species With Extinction

Yes, there were some negative articles this week, but take a closer look -- almost all of them mention the things people are doing (or can do) to turn things around. That's why I do this. There are heroes out there, and there are solutions.
More next week. As always, if you can't wait until then you can also follow me on Twitter, where I'll post headlines as they go live. Some of them may even be fun!
