Audubon, Frogs, and stuff you missed
First up, my usual two endangered species columns for Scientific American:
Low genetic diversity, local resentment threaten great Indian bustard
Central American crocodile recovers and crawls off endangered species
Next, a fun piece for Mother Nature Network, based on the 226th birthday of naturalist John James Audubon (a day that also happened to have been my own birthday):
5 things you didn't know about John James Audubon
This week also saw the usual six "green tips" blogs for Green Hands USA. Some of these are for events that have already passed, but I tried to make them timeless:
It's Arbor Day: Let's Celebrate Trees [this was very popular]
Frogs Need Your Help Today [my third year in a row covering the annual Save the Frogs Day]
Kajeet: Go Green with Refurbished Phones
Blue Book Picks Greenest Cars of 2011
Which Supermarket Sells the Most Sustainable Seafood?
Five Things to do AFTER Earth Day
Finally, here's a bit of humor I did for my own blog. This got re-tweeted a number of times. I think you'll get a kick out of it:
